Gardener, Handy Man or Woman

We run a 4.5-acre kitchen garden supporting adults with learning disabilities to gain gardening qualifications. We have raised beds for vegetables, a large fruit cage, orchard, wild area and wildlife pond as well as a fully equipped woodwork room and kitchen. We also run monthly toddler groups, family fun days and work with schools to support the curriculum through outdoor learning.


If you have a passion for growing things and cooking them or enjoy woodwork and DIY then we would love to hear from you. We are a friendly team who will provide tea and fun.


We are here to support everyone so would love to see you especially if you are feeling isolated or low. Gardening is good for your physical and mental health and we strive to help people grow as much as the plants.

We are open Mon – Fri 8:30-3 but are happy for people to help as and when suits them as we understand that life changes


A happy disposition, keenness to get stuck in and enjoy a good laugh
