Volunteering Days

Every Tuesday — Green Gym session from 11am–2pm.

Green Gym
Come along and volunteer to help maintain the garden. No experience necessary.

Get fresh air, exercise and a chance to meet new people while helping in your community. It is a great way to learn some new skills too!

Want to join in the fun? Pop in for a chat with us. Try it out in a taster session to see if it is for you. Plus we always make time for a cuppa and have a blether with fellow volunteers. See you there!

Please get in touch with the Volunteer Coordinator for information/registration on these workshops — email julie@girvancommunitygarden.com
