Community Gardener

We are a children's charity that would like a sunny someone to take the lead in developing our community garden.  We currently rent a plot of land close to our community hub in Jaywick which we want to develop as a safe and peaceful place for children, young people and parents to spend time learning the pleasure of tending and growing seasonal vegetables and plants.

We want to share the benefits of working outdoors in a sensory natural space, within the community, that brings a sense of wellbeing and camaradarie. 


We are seeking someone who is passionate about gardening and landscaping. A person who has a natural sense of empathy and enthusiasm for others development. Ideally eco friendly and creative.

Our children, young people and parents can be a lively bunch so we would like our volunteers to be open minded, patient and able to work with people of all ages and abilities and to make people feel included.
