We are looking for a Manager for Cobham Community Garden. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of our project 'Bringing the Community to Grow'
The role would involve organising monthly Committee meetings, co-ordinating operational activities, fund raising and administration. There is also the opportunity to become a Director.
We seek to encourage the community to live a greener lifestyle through organic produce and consumption, as well as through recycling, composting, reducing water use and waste.
We are a self-funded entity, a not-for-profit horticultural initiative. This means that we manage our gardens through community involvement, and share our produce with our volunteers. So, the more time you spend in the garden, the more fruit and vegetables you can enjoy. We also sell our produce at the monthly Cobham Farmers Market.
What skills do I need?
Well organised, interest in working with the community, good team worker, understanding financial matters such as accounts, insurance and budgeting would be an asset.
