Volunteering Opportunity at our Growing Project

About You: We are looking for someone aged 18+ with experience in horticulture

Location: Cemetery Road Community Allotment, Osborne Road, Birkby HD1 5HB

Time: Every Wednesday from 11am until 2pm

Role Description:

We are looking for someone with horticulture experience and an interest in supporting people and helping our staff team facilitate a growing project at the Cemetery Road Community Allotments in Birkby, Huddersfield. You will volunteer alongside our experienced team and help ensure that participants are safe and are benefitting from outdoor activities for their wellbeing. Our participants can be any adult in Kirklees who wants to learn about allotment growing and some will be engaging with us specifically as a way to help them manage their mental health.


S2R are always keen to draw on our facilitator's skills and passions, so we encourage you to bring your ideas as well as your labour and skills to the role. The successful volunteer will be fully supported with training given and any travel expenses will be refundable in accordance with our policies. If you are unsure about volunteering then why not book onto one of our sessions and join the team for a week or two to see if it's for you. Please note that there are no toilet facilities at this location and unfortunately it is not accessible.

Application Deadline: Wednesday 18th September 2024
