Core Volunteer - Dig4Jaywick Community Garden

← Back to search results

Core volunteers role include:

• General gardening duties

• Holding keys to the garden

• Supporting and supervising volunteers in the garden

• Being responsible for health & safety of volunteers and for security in the garden

The Community Garden is based in the centre of Jaywick. We are open for local people to come along and spend however much time they want doing some gardening. The aim is to help people who are isolated to get out and meet others: for those who are un- or under- employed to get some work experience; and to add to the enjoyment of Jaywick as a great place to live.

NOTE: We especially welcome people who are referred on social prescriptions and similar informal "rehabilitative" schemes, but please note we are not specialists in any form of formal rehabilitation or treatment disciplines.
