Volunteering at Rodborough School

We want as many people from the community as possible to take part in and benefit from our exciting new Community Art Garden at Rodborough School in Milford. The idea is to create a productive growing space where local people can get involved in arts and gardening activities that boost health and wellbeing as well as encouraging new skills and friendships. The garden is open to volunteers on the following dates and watch this space for regular opportunities (Children must be accompanied by adults)




Monday 4 April 1pm – 4pm Preparing beds and willow work
Tuesday 5 April 10am – 1pm Preparing raised beds and willow work
Saturday 16 April 9:30am – 12:30pm Composting, sowing meadow and cut
Saturday 7 May 9:30am – 12:30pm Planting
Saturday 14 May 9:30 – 12:30pm Planting


We are also keen to reach out to local community organisations for regular gardening sessions on Wednesdays.

The project also needs donations to help replenish supplies of seeds, plants and tools. Please see the following list:

Raised beds – Mediterraenean: Lavender Geum Rosemary Bay Thyme Marjoram Salvia Hemerocallis   Long Borders - Perennial Herbaceous: Crocosmia Hollyhocks Alchemilla mollis Campanula Rudbeckia Echinacea Sweet peas Clematis Helianthus Snapdragons Miscanthus Pennisetum Carex Geraniums   Dry Garden: Phormium Cordyline Festuca Ophiopogon Thrift Sedu
