Job Description - EXPIRED

About the opportunity

This is part of an active team who maintain allotments at Knowle Road. We particularly need volunteers over the summer.

We would like people who are willing to dig and work hard and aren't afraid of getting muddy.

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 adults referred by their GP or self-referred.

What are they looking for?

You will be joining a team who maintain the allotments used by our Neighbourhood Scheme.

No gardening knowledge is required, just a willingness to work hard and get involved.

Practical Considerations

This is suitable for anyone over 18 who is reasonably fit. Gardening is done outdoors and runs in all weathers. Please wear weather appropriate clothing and study shoes. There is shelter and there are plenty of tools.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please email Rosalyn Clare at saying why you would be a good person for the role, as well as your post code.
