OPP OF THE DAY: Volunteer to support volunteers and to do gardening, Jasmine Road Community Gardens

Description:Gardening
Digging, sowing seeds, maintaining gardens, watering, learning new skills, hedge trimming, tidying areas, pruning, cutting down bushes. There are many tasks; the tasks are important but we also value the experience for the volunteer – social and learning opportunities. We have started cooking lunch once a week and skills in this area would help us.
There is a variety of work to be done, but a commitment to our project is the most important part of being a Friend of Jasmine Road.

Ex-offenders would depend on what they were convicted for and on personal interview.

Disabled volunteers support/access: to be discussed. This role is for the support of such volunteers and while some disabilities would be fine, the role is to support others.

Any new people joining us must be aware that we are all volunteers. We do have policies in place for Health and Safety and Safeguarding but we are all working ‘on a level playing field.’ We do not accept bad behaviour or language, discrimination, racism or intolerance of any kind.

Skills:
Personal skills particularly in supporting vulnerable adults.
An ability to ‘get stuck in’ and join the group in whatever the tasks for the day are.
