GROWING A COMMUNITY

DROP IN  GARDEN VOLUNTEERING
WEDS & SUNDAYS 1-4pm

You can join us in the garden every Wednesday and Sunday afternoon for our drop in volunteering sessions.  No prior gardening experience is needed and all equipment is provided.

Volunteers help us maintain the communal areas of the garden and help with tasks such as watering, composting and carrying out repairs.

There is always a cuppa available and people to chat to, so its a great way of getting to meet your neighbours. Children need to be accompanied by adults, and we recommend wearing sturdy shoes.

TESTIMONIALS

“I love the opportunity to grow food for my wee family. I find it very therapeutic. I've never had a garden or grown my own vegetables before and I get so much enjoyment from it. My little girl has planted and harvested vegetables for the first time and seen where food comes from.”

 “I find the community of people involved in the garden extremely warm, welcoming and ready to help. There are people from all over the world involved in the garden as well as locally, and I have learnt about different cultures by talking about what we are growing.”

“When I first came across the garden, I had recently become unemployed and was feeling at a bit of a loss. I had quickly lost my confidence after not being in a workplace and really missed interacting with people on a daily basis. Now 6 months later, my volunteering at the garden has had a profound effect on me. It has increased my confidence. I am so much happier, feel valued and useful and have made new friends for life. “

“I have really benefited from volunteering at the garden. I was referred to the Garden through the 'Inspire' programme via Glasgow Royal Infirmary Intensive Care Unit as part of my rehabilitation having been seriously injured in the Clutha Pub Helicopter accident. I have been unable to return to work due to physical health issues since the accident but the garden has allowed me to slowly build up my physical and mental well being. It has restored my confidence and promoted my independence and I feel less isolated and ultimately healthier.”
