Come and learn how to tend for the garden with wildlife in mind at Denmark Farm.
Volunteers will receive hands-on practical training with tutor Malcolm Berry, learning how to grow your own edible crops, plus care for a wildlife friendly garden.
The volunteer programme compliments and supports our paid Grow Your Own courses throughout the year. Our friendly little team of dedicated volunteers will ensure that the garden is maintained, productive and attractive to wildlife at all times.
2020 sessions will take place from 10am to 2.30pm on the following dates:
- Sunday 9th February (NB. Cancelled due to weather forecast for wind and rain!)
- Sunday 1st March
- Sunday 12th April

The programme is suitable for anyone from complete beginners, to those who already have some previous growing experience / knowledge.
