Job description

Arts Bridge Charity are currently working on a free intergenerational arts-based nature project where children, elders, gardeners & local artists will collaborate to regenerate the gardens of two residential care homes into vibrant creative hubs.

The care homes are in Tottenham and Waltham Forest.

We’re looking for a gardener (ideally based in North London) who can take the lead on preparing the raised beds and planters for seedlings at the care home/s and tend to them on a weekly basis for the duration of the project. 

We’re also keen for the project to ignite (or reignite, for the elders) a passion for gardening, so are excited about opportunities for participants to learn about nature, the environment and gardening - maybe through nature craft workshops and / or talks. So gardeneres with any teaching / workshop leading experience would be a great fit. 

Overall dates:

June - early September 2022 (approx 3 months)

Duration:

2 visits / week 

- 1 visit to each care home

- either 2 x half days or 2 x full days depending on requirements

Fee:

We have budgeted £20/hr with potential flexibility on this. The fee will be adjusted to accommodate any additional workshops.

Feel free to visit the Arts Bridge website to find out more about our work. And please do get in touch with any questions at all.
