Allotment Maintenance Volunteer

Martlets Hospice

Register your Interest

Martlets took over plot 98 at the Weald allotments in 2019. We wanted to offer a safe space for therapeutic group bereavement support. A place where the isolation of grief could be met by others, and we could share the pain of loss.

We are looking for volunteers to help maintain the allotment, allowing our bereavement groups to grow and harvest a variety of vegetables, fruits and flowers. This could include repairing any damage to structures or raised beds, clearing areas ready for growing, weeding or watering between group sessions.

Skills

  • Gardening/allotment work and working outdoors
  •  Insight and awareness of the work of a Hospice

Benefits

  • This is a great opportunity to support bereaved men in your local community.
