VOLUNTEERING

Applications for the 2021 season closed

This season, we are again opening our volunteer scheme to 4 members of our community. The scheme, which runs every Wednesday May - November, offers those who are keen to learn more about vegetable growing and organic practices the opportunity to prepare, seed, plant, maintain and harvest with us. We talk through crop planning and rotation, soil health, composting, extending the growing season and everything we've learnt in our combined 13 seasons on the land. Our Volunteer Scheme members will also enjoy the fruits of their labour by becoming a CSA share member and experience home cooked lunches from our gardens.

  • Work with us on the farm for 7 hours per week (Wednesday 9-4pm, including 30 minute tea break and 1hr for lunch)

  • Gain confidence in your technical growing knowledge

  • Learn tips and tricks, first hand, from experienced growers

  • Contribute to your local Community Supported Agriculture Scheme

  • Gain free membership to a Farm Share worth over £300

  • Share a home-cooked, organic farm lunch from our Goose Barn Kitchen

  • Receive a Volunteer Handbook covering all that we learn together throughout the season
