Community Kitchen Garden
Project Category: Informal community group
<P>The community garden at Gunnersbury Park sits on the site of the Rothschild familys original kitchen garden and aims to bring a tradition of growing fruit, vegetables, herbs and cutting flowers back to this historic site. We want to create a friendly, accessible and relaxing space for all of Gunnersburys users, as well as a place for volunteers to get involved in the life of the park and develop new skills.</P> <P>This is a great opportunity for volunteers to use and develop gardening skills in growing their own fruits and vegetables, as well as the chance to meet new people and make new friends.</P> <P>Volunteer sessions are held within Gunnersbury Parks kitchen garden between 10am 12pm every Wednesday morning.</P> <P>We are seeking volunteers, with any amount of gardening experience, to help manage and maintain the upkeep of Gunnersbury Parks kitchen garden. Volunteers should expect to be involved in a wide variety of garden tasks depending on seasons and needs. With gardens open to the public, volunteers should be happy talking to the public (informally) explaining what they are doing and how it will affect the park overall.</P> <P>Working as part of a group, under the supervision of the park staff and the Gunnersbury User Volunteers group, volunteers will be working towards creating a tidy, safe, productive and attractive kitchen garden. </P> <P>Complimentary tea and coffee will be provided after each session.</P> <P><BR></P>
