Volunteer Community Gardener

Homerton, London

Posted: 3 Mar 2023

Deadline: 17 Apr 2023

Compensation: Unpaid

Unpaid Volunteer Part-time


Job description

We are looking for volunteers to help support two vibrant community gardens on the Kingsmead Estate in Homerton, Hackney.

Each garden opens on a weekly basis (EastMead garden opens on Wednesdays 1-3 pm, and WestMead garden opens on Saturdays 11 am - 2 pm).  They are important venues for local residents to socialise and make friends, learn new skills, and have access to food they have grown themselves.  WestMead garden also opens to the wider community on a regular basis, when the volunteers run a series of events (e.g. Big Garden Bird watch, summer BBQ, pumpkin carving, wreath making etc.) for local families.

To find out more about the spaces, please visit their facebook pages - WestMead and EastMead.





Application information

If you have experience of gardening and supporting residents, we would love to hear from you.  Please send an email to and tell us about your experience and why you would like to get involved.  We will then find a good time for you to visit the gardens and meet the other lead volunteers.

Please mention Roots to Work when applying for these jobs
