Our gardens and grounds need care and attention most of the year and we are looking for volunteers to help us look after them and you could benefit too by taking part. Gardening has been linked to improvements in physical and mental health because it’s active, therapeutic and here at the hostel it’s also social.
Some of the tasks you might get involved with are: weeding and trimming, replanting pots and containers, watering, digging, pruning and cutting back, composting, sweeping and clearing
If you’re new to gardening we can show you how to do the tasks involved. We will provide all the tools you will need.
You can claim travel expenses up to £15 per day and we will provide you with free tea and coffee.
You can see all of our hostels offering gardening listed below, simply register for the opportunity you are interested in and the Hostel Manager will be in touch to discuss the next steps.
