Let's Grow Preston manage two sites in which are located at Ashton Walled Garden and Grange Community Garden. Our volunteers book slots of one-two hour sessions to help us maintain the gardens, grow food and create a great sense of Pride and community within Preston.
At our sites we welcome volunteers of all ages, needs and experience within horticulture. We follow the principles of horticultural Therapy to help benefit the mental and physical wellbeing of the people of Preston. As gardening is a wonderfully flexible medium that anyone can benefit from.
We also facilitate training within horticulture and a variety of workshops.
Both sites have wheel chair access and disable toilet facilities.
Once you register to become a volunteer with us you will then:
Be contacted to see which site is best allocated to you.
Arrange a day and time to start volunteering.
Meet within the garden to have a tour of the site.
