About the opportunity

You will join a friendly and active team who maintain allotments at Knowle Road. We grow fruit and vegetables and provide a space for people to enjoy.

It's a lovely place - a bit of green in the middle of the urban streets.

We would like people who are willing to dig! The team work on Tuesday mornings, sometimes the afternoon too. Times are flexible that day and you can come for the amount of time you are free.

About The Springfield Project

The Springfield Project is a Birmingham-based charity with a passion for our local community. We are committed to providing a safe and welcoming space in which people from diverse backgrounds can meet and receive support.

The Project developed from St Christopher's Church's commitment to supporting families in the local area and sharing God's love in our community.

We work in partnership with Birmingham City Council to deliver children's centre services providing activities and support for families with children under 5.

We run the Neighbour Scheme, a social prescription project between local GPs and the Springfield Project, working to reduce isolation and improve the mental wellbeing of local adults.

What are they looking for?

You will be joining a team who maintain the allotments used by the Springfield Project.

No gardening knowledge is required, just a willingness to get involved. the team do gardening in all weathers - there is a sheltered area where they have a cup of tea together.

Practical Considerations

This is suitable for anyone over 18. If you are not fit you can do lighter work.

Gardening is done outdoors and in all weathers. There is shelter and there are plenty of tools. You would need to wear weather appropriate clothing and sturdy shoes.

The team meet on a Tuesday and the number of hours you choose to help can be flexible.
