Volunteer Gardeners are needed for weekly sessions that take place on Monday & Thursday mornings (weather dependent). No experience is necessary just an interest in helping out with various tasks such as watering, sowing seeds, weeding and much more…

Dig It Community Allotment is located at the Byrds Farm Lane Allotment site which is tucked away just behind Crocus Fields road, just off Little Walden Road at the north end of Saffron Walden. It was launched with the purpose of enabling anyone to be able to come and learn how to grow their own fresh, fruit and veg in a friendly social atmosphere. The site has been made wheelchair friendly and has several raised beds with plans for more, so it’s easy for anyone of any age or level of fitness to join in!

Gardeners are needed for:

  • Maintaining our community allotment and ensuring it is clean and tidy.
  • Carrying out small maintenance and repair jobs on the allotment.
  • Helping with planting and harvesting of produce
  • Assisting with composting and soil maintenance.
  • Maintaining the safety and cleanliness of the allotment.

The above list is not exhaustive, and volunteers may be asked to take on other tasks to support and assist the smooth running of the allotment.

Volunteers should wear suitable clothing/footwear for the garden and wear garden gloves.

Skills needed:

No previous experience is required but you must be enthusiastic, friendly and enjoy working outside and working with people.
