It normally takes at least 4 hours per week to keep a smallish plot tidy and working. Those hours rise through the spring and summer and at harvest and fall back in the winter. As long as the plot is kept neat and tidy and productive it is up to you and the garden owner to decide how often you would like to visit.

The gardener will produce fruit and veggies for themselves and the owner of the garden with any surplus going to The Community Grocery to help alleviate food poverty in Hexham. 

We have lots of gardens available and are looking out got gardeners.

How your time will help our organisation

We have a paid co-ordinator who will be happy to steer you in the right direction. We are aiming to have tools that we can lend out to you to use on your plot.

Practical Considerations

We will need to complete a DBS check but criminal convictions will not a bar to being involved, more that we want to place people in the right garden for them.
