Support Nigel and Lucy to care for the ornamental bee garden at the Greenpatch. We are creating a bee/pollinator friendly garden and are looking for some experienced gardeners to support us in keeping on top of the area whilst we run other projects on site. These projects [e.g. children's clubs and supported sessions for adults]will link in with the care of the bee garden however cannot be relied upon to look after plants as their focus is on the process not the product. As such our garden plans remain flexible to fit with the needs of the groups using the site and volunteers are asked to understand and respect this.

Whilst support and direction will be given, the ability to work independently is essential.
