Could you be a Growing Buddy?

Breckland Master Gardeners- care home visit

Now launching an exciting new volunteering opportunity in Breckland!

We are recruiting volunteer ‘Growing Buddies’ to join our current network in Breckland. Growing Buddies will support older and more vulnerable residents in Breckland through growing activities within well-being hubs; care homes, dementia cafes; carer groups; Age UK, walking groups, resident’s associations etc

15 new volunteers will be recruited over the next year to support Breckland residents, encouraging interest in growing, reminiscence about growing and activities that will encourage healthy eating and getting active.

As a Growing Buddy, you don’t have to be an expert gardener, just interested in growing and happy to support others to get involved. As a volunteer you will be encouraged to give your time promoting the programme and supporting others to have a go at growing.

Induction course will be held in June, with continuing training and support from a local Co-ordinator.

So, if you have an interest in growing or just want to learn more by helping others or would like to support your local community and be part of a wider network of those with a passion for organic growing, contact your local Co-ordinator.

If you know of somewhere locally that would benefit from having a Grow Buddy visit them and their residents, then please get in touch.
