Gardening Club

Join our Volunteer Team, it’s a great way to share knowledge, pick up new skills and experience and meet new friends.

Volunteers are essential to help deliver Inspero’s work with young people. We will provide any training you need through local community learning training or on the job coaching, wherever possible.

This is a good way to find out more about our organisation and the difference our support can make to young peoples lives.

“I love helping at Love2Grow – it gives me pleasure seeing the children blossom just like the plants!  They are not afraid to try something new anymore! It also gives me ideas of what to grow in my own garden.  My employer also helps with funding. Every bit helps.”

“I have been a volunteer at Inspero since November 2015. I was keen to get involved to do something local and practical to help young people and Inspero very much appealed to my interests. Having previously worked in mental health, I absolutely believe in the importance and benefits of gardening, growing, being outside and eating healthily. I am also a creative person and love to get involved in any arts and crafts, baking, cooking and making. My working background includes working with special needs children and as a professional fundraiser for various charities.”

“I have been volunteering for Inspero since May 2014 when I first started to patch up their old website, and then Catherine realised she really needed to have a much more modern website, complete with a calendar system and booking mechanism, so she asked me to create one for her. I enter in new events, set up new tickets, add in new photos, maintain the blog and keep everything tidy and working well for all those associated with Inspero to enjoy.”
