*NEW VOLUNTEERS NEEDED*
We are 100% volunteer project and and the future success of the field depends on YOU! Can you spare a few hours on a Saturday morning between 10am and 1pm?
In preparation for this year's harvest we are in need of new volunteers to help us with a variety of tasks including:
Re-planting the field ~ Harvesting ~ Distillation ~ Pruning ~ Light gardening duties ~ Cutting bunches of
lavender ~ Making lavender bunches ~ watering baby plants ~ plucking tall grasses ~ stewards at our open day
No experience necessary. We will show you what to do and we have all the equipment needed. Tea and squash is provided and sometimes even home made cake! Experienced gardeners welcome too!
We're a friendly bunch and would love to meet you, so if you're thinking about it and would like to know more feel free to contact us or just pop down to the field on a Saturday morning and have look around (best to let us know to expect you).
5 Reasons to Volunteer with Carshalton Lavender:
Don't think you have time to volunteer?
