Tuesdays 1.00 -3.30 pm

Gardening for Wellbeing

Many studies now prove that gardening and being outdoors can greatly improve wellbeing, both physically and emotionally.

We have lots of different garden areas at Fieldcrest, mainly divided into individual uses/themes and welcome volunteers who would like to spend a few hours a week gardening. The land is flat and fairly easy to work.

What will volunteers do?

We now have a small number of volunteers who come along on a Tuesday afternoon to help in the garden and do a variety of gardening jobs, plus recording, photographing and propagating.

Do I need to be an expert gardener?

No. It is a help if you know something about gardening, but most of the jobs are supervised by Chris (who usually joins in) so that’s no problem. Enthusiasm, sociability and being fairly fit will all help – tea and biscuits tend to help too!

We have a lovely cabin to meet in before we start and shelter in if the weather is poor (which of course it never is!)

If you would like to join us and learn more then please contact us by e mail or phone for further information.
