    We’re a friendly team and you’ll be made to feel very welcome. You needn’t come every week.

    Please let us know the first time you intend to come and help. Contact Charlotte Barry who will arrange a Covid-safe taster session for you and answer any queries you may have.

    If you like getting your hands dirty and wish to get stuck into vegetable growing you can come:-
      Monday 09.30-16.30  (March-October)
    •  Thursday 09.30-16.30 (all year)
    •  Friday 09.00-14.00 (all year)

    If you’d like to take part in picking and packing the veg:

    Vulnerable adults
    We also offer support and informal training for vulnerable adults and young people who want to share in the growing experience. Some come to us via local charities and support agencies. Others arrange to take part on an independent basis.

    growers-volunteers-camelcsa-0619We provide the tools and equipment, and always have an expert grower and/or a core management group member on hand during sessions to provide advice and guidance. No previous experience is necessary.

    Please wear suitable clothing and stout boots or wellies as it can be windy, wet and exposed on site. Also bring your own gardening/work gloves plus drinks, snacks and/or a packed lunch.

    Other ways to volunteer
    There are all kinds of volunteering activities available. Not all of them are sowing, planting, weeding and spreading compost! Please contact our secretary if you’d like to help out with admin tasks or in any other way.
