• offering support with gardening groups for centre members

• the gardeners under glass project also requires support looking after seedlings and vegetables growing in the Molesey greenhouse

• project leaders to run 2 hour sessions weekly and hold regular meetings to decide the direction of the project.

This role would be ideal for someone who:

• Enjoys gardening and being outside.

• Wants to meet new people who share their hobby.

• Would like to support their local community.

What skills do I need?

A basic knowledge of gardening would be desirable for this role.
