We are always pleased to welcome new volunteers, and there are a whole variety of roles you can get involved with, whether you've got a few hours a week, a month, or a year, we hope you will enjoy being part of the Communigrow Community:
Come along and enjoy the benefits of being in a beautiful rural setting amongst nature, getting stuck into a rewarding activity, and with good company, a cup ot tea and a buscuit, what better way to spend a few hours?!
No experience necessary, and a great opportunity to learn from other Communigrowers, and our Communigrower Gurus about growing your own food.
There are regular sessions you can get come along to that involve seasonal tasks, such as sewing seeds, transplanting from nursery into main beds, planting, weeding and watering, as well as harvesting.
Do you have an idea that needs some land to grow some of your produce? Ideas such as culinary herbs for oil infusing, or flowers for cutting, we might be able to help.
For example we currently host bee hives for Bray's Bees.
We have several groups who come along to the field on a regular basis, and we can always do with some extra hands. Groups include Five Acre Wood School, 6th Form students with SEN, and Home Education Groups.
Do you have knowledge and experience of market gardening? Permaculture? Other approaches to food farming that you would like to contribute to the project?
We'd love to hear from you! Skill sharing is at the core of what we do.
We need help spreading the word about Communigrow, so if you are interested in helping with our social media, website updates, calendar updates, newsletter production, or even putting up posters locally about the charity get communicating and send us an email!
Do you have a fantastic idea for Communigrow that you would like to develop? Or do you have an interest and would like to help develop the current projects?

If you would like help in other ways, like sourcing resources or would just like to hear about what is happening subscribe to our mailing list. We invite our friends along to the field for special events, like the Field Kitchen.
Would you be interested in delivering veg boxes to local residents or our community outlets? Or perhaps take a turn in running the Commungrow Stall at the Brassey Centre, or on the green in Ditton? Or have a ramble with the barrow around the EMRC site on a friday afternoon?
It's a great sociable activity that really connects you with local people!
