The Green Prosperity/Food 360 team will be running sessions to develop our ‘Grow It, Eat It’ area at East Hull Community Farm, Barham Road, HU9 4EE (next to Andrew Marvell academy). This area provides a learning resource and activity area where we work every week with local residents, including young families, the elderly, homeless individuals, ex-offenders, school children and youth groups, to help them learn more about growing, harvesting and cooking their own fruit and vegetables.
Volunteers can expect to take part in a variety of activities, from seed-sowing to building raised beds and planters, to cooking pizzas in our outdoor pizza oven. All volunteers will have the chance to learn more about organic gardening principles and practices from our gardening team. We can also pay all travel expenses and provide a light lunch at these sessions and volunteers are welcome to just come to part of a session if they cannot make the full session. Volunteers will need strong boots or wellies and warm clothing; all other equipment will be provided.
Weekly Gardening Volunteering Days starting in March – these will run 1-3pm every Wednesday from Weds 5th March and are open to anyone living in the Southcoates or Longhill Wards of East Hull.
Monthly Gardening Volunteering Days starting in March – these will run 10am-3pm on the first Tuesday of every month, from Tues 4th March and are open to anyone living in Hull & the East Riding.
