It's wonderful to have you on board 

Here are some guidelines we have put together to help us to work together smoothly and respectfully:

  • Bring your own gloves and hat

  • Attending working bees and supporting the general needs of the garden. This involves weeding, mulching and watering if needed. A notice board in the garden indicates daily what needs to be done

  • We record our activities in the garden diary so volunteer hours are recorded and can be used to apply for grants (garden diary is in the round concrete shed)

  • We take all our rubbish home

  • Organic practices apply. We don't use any chemicals or pesticides. 

  • Minimise water use by watering less frequently but slowly and prolonged, also mulching. 

  • Look after our garden tools. Cleaning them and returning them back to the shed where we keep them. 

  • We value the good will of our neighbours and we respect their privacy

  • Work safely and take reasonable care to protect your own health & safety

  • Report any breakages to a committee member

  • Wear sunscreen!

  • Follow guidelines on handling potting mix and compost. e.g. wear gloves and keep products most (to avoid breathing dust and particles when handling). Wash hands immediately after use

  • We encourage gardeners to ensure that their tetanus vaccinations are up to date

  • This is a great place for children but they need to be supervised and are at your responsibility

  • Our First Aid Kit is kept in the garden whare

  • Don't hesitate to call an ambulance on 111 if you think is necessary
