Opportunities

It is important to us that The Garden House helps to improve the environment both for people and wildlife both on site and in the context of the local and wider area.  We would like the Garden House to help people to enjoy the outdoors, learning about working sustainably with the land to create wildlife habitats and sustainable resources for successful enterprise.

We are eager to explore the opportunities of connecting with local individuals, local businesses, local schools, charities and organisations.

Rural Enterprise
Making the countryside a viable place to make a livelihood is important to us.  If it is in keeping with the aims of the project, we are happy to look at supporting individuals with space, networking, ideas, resources, education, etc. Please contact us if you think we might be able to help.

Client-based opportunities
The project has the opportunity to provide a learning and caring environment to support clients from a range of different special needs backgrounds.  We are keen to create an environment which will offer a rewarding, happy and meaningful way to take part in outdoor activities.

There are always grounds maintenance jobs to do, new projects to develop, and ideas to be thought of.  For example, as our project is still young, we haven’t yet worked out how we will use all the fruit that will come out of the orchard. We will be happy to discuss individual needs, abilities and interests.

Volunteer
If you are interested in working on the land and learning about the various elements of running a farm, market garden, smallholding, or country estate, either just for fun or as part of a move towards a career in land-based work, then we would love to hear from you.  We would like to offer opportunities for people to be part of this exciting project!  You may be interested in visiting us and getting involved with the Thursday Pop-In!  Please feel free to contact us to find out more.
