Fancy yourself a bit green-fingered? Want to learn more about gardening? Why not volunteer at our Social and Therapeutic Horticulture sessions and make our participants smile?

We are looking for friendly and reliable volunteers who enjoy nature-based activities and love to be outside to assist with our Social and Therapeutic Horticulture sessions. These sessions allow our participants, many of whom are older and live with dementia or other chronic disabilities and illnesses, to reconnect to nature and enjoy some gardening. 

Activities are varied and may involve planting seeds, repotting plants, pruning, making ‘green’ crafts, and similar activities. There’s lots to learn! No prior experience is needed. 

We run sessions during the week at our dementia-friendly allotment in Brenty, at our community garden at Blaise Weston Court in Lawrence Weston, at the Wellspring Settlement community garden in Barton Hill, and in care homes in and around Bristol.  

Please find the volunteer role description with further info, dates and times here.

Please email our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@aliveactivities.org or give us a call on 0117 377 4756 for more information.

We’re looking forward to having you on board!
