Nurture through Nature

Nurture Through Nature is a small Brighton charity addressing food poverty in our city by growing and supplying fresh allotment produce to local food banks and community centres.
Tasks will be varied, but most of all, fun.

  • Learn food growing and general gardening skills
  • Develop a sense of value through performing meaningful work which benefits the local community
  • Get into a regular working routine
  • Feel more orientated and connected to your local environment
  • Meet like-minded people within a supportive group
  • Increase your confidence
  • Gain a greater appreciation of nature and its therapeutic possibilities
  • Develop a new skill set to take away with you

 


When:

  • Mondays
  • Fridays

Mondays and Fridays, 9.30am-2.30pm. We meet at the Moulsecoomb allotment gates at 9.30am to gain access (the gates are otherwise locked) and we ask that our volunteers work through until the 2.30pm finish time.

We close the plot from the end of December through January. The sessions are starting up again from Monday 3rd February 2020.

Facilities:

The project takes place over three plots. There is a community hut with facilities for making hot drinks and there are also camping-style toilet facilities.

All volunteers should wear suitable clothing/footwear and bring lunch, drinks, suncream, a hat and/or wet weather gear.

Who is it for?:

Adults (over 18s only) are welcome who are open to learning basic food growing skills within a friendly team environment. No previous experience of gardening is required. Tasks will be tailored to physical abilities taking note of any health considerations. Please contact the project beforehand if you are planning to come along, so that they know to expect you.
