Gardening enthusiast required to manage small allotment
Organisation: Community Impact Bucks
Date: 24 March 2012
Buckinghamshire 'Working with Dads' Project and Barnardos Children's Centre require a volunteer to work a few hours per week running a small allotment. The allotment is intended to be used by dads / grandads and children of pre-school age to 5 yrs to learn about growing their own crops. This will be an excellent opportunity to help bring the local community together. Would prefer help on Saturday / Sundays but can be flexible and consider other days of the week.
