    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.

    We provide hot and cold refreshments on Sunday mornings.

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