We welcome volunteers at Cardiff Salad Garden. It is a great place to meet people, join in with growing activities such as planting, picking, weeding and watering salad.
Volunteering offers you the chance to get involved in a small group setting with friendly people who can help you build your confidence, make friends, practice language skills and provide a calm setting to just have some time away from the stresses of everyday life. Funded by WCVA Volunteering Wales Grants in 2021 and 2022, through Welsh Government Funding we have been able to resume a full programme of volunteering opportunities.
Sessions led by Sophie or Noa are welcoming, inclusive, fun and usually involve lots of cake and biscuits – we have a light lunch at the end of each session.
Sessions are currently running Tuesdays and Fridays 10am -12.30pm
Ring Sophie 07715388771 to book your place, once you have had an induction you can drop into sessions as and when you would like.
We also often need Volunteer Cyclists to assist with salad delivery and Digital Volunteers to assist with a range of admin tasks if you are interested in this please get in contact.
We also teamed up with South Riverside Community Development Centre to join in their Veg give-aways and ran zoom sessions on how to grow a range of salad and vegetables. Socially distanced monthly give-aways provided over
with seasonal veg plugs and flowers, pots and soil for their gardens.
