Garden volunteer recruitment has been paused during the lockdown.
As part of our new project, Putting Down Roots in Rotherhithe the Farm is looking for some enthusiastic gardening volunteers on Sundays and Mondays to help look after our green spaces and keep the Farm looking its best. It is also a great chance to learn more about horticulture, meet like-minded locals and make the most of the outdoors.
We have a wide range of green spaces which need tending throughout the year, whatever the weather. We only use organic gardening methods and are always looking to get the most out of our spaces.
With the seasons changing we are looking for new volunteers to keep the Farm looking good.
We now offer free accredited training through AQA as part of our volunteer programme.

Do you have an interest in horticulture and gardening? Would you like to learn more about organic methods of gardening, growing fruit and vegetables, herbs, ornamentals, seasonal tasks and garden maintenance.
Please register your interest via the form below. We’ll invite you in for an induction to explain more about the role, cover health and safety aspects and show you round the Farm. You can then join the Sunday group by booking a free slot through Eventbrite. We are currently having a maximum of five volunteers per session.
