- Date Feb 17
- Time 10:30 am till 1:00 pm
Join our friendly gardeners at Stanley Arts. Help maintain the planters, grow herbs and flowers, learn about gardening practices throughout the year and enjoy a cup of tea and chat with fellow volunteers from the community.
Tracy Holtham, our friendly Gardening Volunteer Leader, will cover a different theme each month. We will also undertake a plant walk, looking at the history and characteristics of some of the plants, together with some general gardening maintenance.
Please be reassured that activities are planned for both outdoors and indoors for each session, so that we can be comfortable irrespective of the weather.
Email Tracy@stanleyarts.org to find out more and sign up to volunteer!
