We need additional helpers to run the plant stalls and Tea Shed at Oldway. Tim Eley from Torbay in Bloom and the Sustainable Plant Project, Oldwaygardening Volunteers Group (you can find more info on their FB page, or message me or come down most mornings 10am to 12.30 and meet us chat about the opportunity to volunteer).   

2 or 3 hours a couple of times a week would really help take some of the strain off the existing volunteers who are typically putting in 8 hours a week currently.  

We sell the plants and the money (after paying for the plants) comes into Oldway Gardens to buy more Sustainable Plants (which once planted will stay in all year round, year after year).  Getting larger every year to make the formal Parterre gardens amazing again).  Buy new gravel and varnish for the benches etc.. 

 

Venue

Oldway Mansions Gardens, Preston. Paignton.

  • Toilet
  • Parking
Mostly working outside in gardens or on the Plant Stall, could be sitting down to sell plants.

When:

Sat & Sundays. We're very flexible. Even just 1 hour
