Volunteering with us
Growing People has been awarded certification to confirm that we meet the Volunteer Centres Hertfordshire 6 point promise for Valuing Volunteer Management
We are pleased to offer a range of volunteering opportunities.
Our volunteers work alongside our gardeners/service users and support them in a wide variety of tasks. Although gardening knowledge is useful, no prior knowledge is required by our volunteers.
The main criteria for this position is that you enjoy being with people, you subscribe to our values, and you have 3 hours per week which you are willing to donate to the project.
Please note that it is important to the continuity of our provision that volunteers work on the same day each week. This enables volunteers to get to know their team and the people in the team can get to know you within a relaxed and supportive environment.
Some contributors to our work prefer not to be directly involved in supporting our gardeners but do want to contribute by volunteering on site. We welcome this support also as there are always plenty of jobs to do on our site!
Weekend VolunteersWe are also seeking to build a team of weekend volunteers to support us at fundraising events, farmers market stalls etc.
