    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. We can supply gloves or you can bring your own.

    Please bring your own snacks and/or a packed lunch. We have basic tea and coffee making facilities at St Kew Highway or you can go next door to St Kew Farm Shop & Cafe.
