Community Allotment Volunteer

← Back to search results

The Gateway Allotment Project is a community garden project which runs from New Pond Farm Allotments in Earlswood.

The aim of the Gateway Allotment Project is to offer new opportunities to people who may be isolated from their local community. The overriding theme of the project is empowerment. People coming along will be given the opportunity to take the lead in how the project develops. This will help to improve confidence and feelings of importance and ownership which are all key to enabling individuals to develop and progress into training, education or employment. As well as coming along to get involved in activities we also want people to feel comfortable to do nothing during sessions. Just being present in a safe outdoor space can have a profound effect on an individual’s wellbeing.

 Sessions are very relaxed; we always have hot drinks and sweet treats and people can do as much or as little as they like. We want people to enjoy being part of a group, getting to know each other and enjoying the many health benefits of gardening

What skills do I need?

We are happy to take on volunteers from all walks of life.  No skills needed.

In bad weather, please remember to wear hats, scarf, gloves and boots.
