Bainfield Gardens aims to provide an environment where people with mental health issues can come to a place where the environment itself creates healing. This will be done through teaching people work base skills in a gardening environment which has a Christian culture of encouragement and love towards each other. Giving back to the community and bringing enjoyment into the clients lives so they are able to transition back into the fullness of life.
Volunteers are sought, to help in areas such as working in the gardens, planting, cultivating and encouraging clients.
Volunteers will develop their own skills and enjoy seeing their contribution to the progress of clients wellbeing.

Tasks:

  • taking the lead
  • designating tasks for the clients
  • working alongside the site Manager

Even a batch of scones for "smoko" would be hugely appreciated
