Gardening Volunteer

Bee On Flower

Do you want to learn how to garden, raising plants from seed and growing your own food? If you already have a lot of gardening knowledge, perhaps you would like to help people with a disability to learn the basics of growing for themselves?

Headway Cambridgeshire are offering a limited number of spaces on their next Growing Together gardening course for volunteers who want to learn how to garden and support people who have experienced a brain injury to learn alongside them. The course is free and open to all.

The scheme aims to get experienced and not so experienced gardeners together along with people who have suffered brain injuries so that all the participants can share their knowledge and learn both about gardening and about brain injury.

At Headway Cambridgeshire we offer specialist rehabilitation for people with brain injuries. A vital part of the treatment is Horticultural Therapy which helps to increase psychological, physical and emotional wellbeing for those who have experienced a brain injury.

The project will take place at a community garden in Cambridge and one in Peterborough from Thursday 13 September 2018 until mid-March 2019- You only need to volunteer at one of these places for two hours a week.

If you want to volunteer to share skills, learn new ones and be part of something special, contact Simon Lacey on 01223 576550 or for more information.


Thank you for the support and advice that you have been giving my husband. This has in turn taken a lot of pressure off me and has helped me through his bad days and angry spells.
