As we ring in 2015, we’re also excited to start a number of new projects and welcome new volunteers! Are you looking to get more involved with the community this year? Or perhaps you’ve resolved to get outdoors more. If you are an enthusiastic individual who loves Mudchute and is looking to help the community, why not join our team as a volunteer?
Our work would not be possible without our fantastic volunteers, who make contributions across Mudchute. With the help of our new volunteer coordinator, we are excited to be launching several new projects to enhance the park and open spaces and we need your help to make these projects a success.
The Mudchute Shop is being re-launched with new product lines and décor. We would love volunteers to help in the shop during the week and especially at the weekend. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain some valuable experience in a retail environment and a great help.
Horticulture is high on the agenda
Caring for our Trees
Mudchute’s many trees require lots of maintenance and care throughout the year. Learn how to maintain, coppice, prune and even fell trees.
We’ll be looking to grow our own organic vegetables in the allotments, both for sale in the Mudchute Farm Shop as well as for use in Muddy Boots Nursery. We’ll also be growing both annual and perennial flowers, taking cuttings from fruits and ornamental shrubs, and planting a wildflower meadow. Not only will these additions be beautiful all year round, they will also help provide important food sources and habitats for wildlife!
Why not join us regularly? We’d like to create horticultural groups for all who would like to learn, participate or share their skills. Whether you would like to learn to basics, increase your knowledge or just get out and about! Volunteering is a great way to develop new skills and chance to meet new people.
