Putting Down Roots – Gardening Support Volunteer

    It’s fantastic that you’d like to find out more about volunteering at St Mungo’s. Are you keen on supporting our clients in their recovery through gardening? Putting Down Roots is a horticultural therapy and training project, using gardening as a tool to help people in their recovery. The Putting Down Roots team recently scooped a Silver Medal for its innovative garden at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show. In this role, you will be supporting clients to learn how to plant and grow flowers, herbs, vegetables, how to maintain green spaces and to learn other gardening skills.
