Secret Garden Wellbeing Volunteer

Do you enjoy pottering in the garden?  Are you passionate about plants and growing vegetables?

Volunteers are needed to look after our Secret Garden and encourage and guide NHS staff to come along and take care of the space. There are already vegetables growing (and weeds!) and other plants, it just needs some TLC.

The project aims to give staff some down time, a place to leave their busy working day behind for a little while and enjoy the therapeutic process that gardening brings.

We are looking for someone who can either come in at a lunchtime or late afternoon, once or twice a week for two hours.


We are looking for green fingered magicians who know a thing or two about gardening.

Happy to work outside and guide and organise a group of NHS staff with maintaining a staff focused garden for the purpose of wellbeing.
