We urgently need help to water our community green spaces in Bury St Edmunds. Any help is welcome with this, even if you only have 30 minutes spare to water your local site, this would make a big difference.
Greener Growth has fantastic volunteering opportunities for community gardeners to help maintain our green spaces in Bury St Edmunds and beyond.
You will be a valued member of the Greener Growth team and play an important role in bringing your community together, making it a more beautiful, and greener place to be.
Volunteering outside is a safe and fun way to meet people and spend time with your neighbours.
There is a wide range of tasks available for different abilities that include:
We plan to arrange events to thank our volunteers and to bring the community together, such as BBQ’s in the summer.
Ongoing practical support and training will be provided where you will learn many useful horticultural skills which can be applied to your own gardens or horticultural workplaces. Each volunteer who completes the training will be awarded a certificate of completion.
Our green spaces have been created to support wildlife, provide food, create attractive areas, and most importantly to bring people together.
Our sites include a memorial orchard, raised vegetable and flower beds and habitats for wildlife. More information on our sites can be found in the interactive map below.
If you are interested in volunteering, we would love to hear from you.
Thank you, from the Greener Growth team.
