Helping Hands Gardening Scheme (VCAEC)Back to Activities
The Helping Hands Gardening Scheme from VCAEC is aimed at people who are unable to tend to their gardens for various reasons such as illness, disability or age. You can join their team of willing volunteers and help with whatever skills you can offer.
This activity is good for wellbeing because
- Volunteering can make you feel valued which boosts morale, self-worth and thereby confidence
- As part of a small team you will gain plenty of new skills, from both the manual and horticultural work you will deliver and also collaborating with others and time-management
- It gives you the opportunity to make new friends and connect with co-workers
