Horticulture Activities Assistant – St Colm’s Day Centre

What will you be doing?

St Colms has a large polytunnel and garden area with cold frames where we grow and sell plants. We are looking for volunteers to assist adults with learning disabilities with horticulture activities. This could be in the polytunnel or outdoors. Tasks include sowing seeds, planting out seedlings, weeding and watering.

Desirable skills

This would suit someone with an interest in gardening but experience is not necessary as training will be given. Tasks will be arranged to suit ability and preference.


Induction covers health and safety, confidentiality and an insight into working with adults with learning disabilities.

Other Information

PVG will be required before volunteer can work with clients.
