We are building up a regular volunteer team at our Dagenham Farm - you can volunteer with us every Wednesday from February to November and every Sunday from April to November. It's a great way to find out more about growing food using organic techniques, improve your growing skills or just get a bit of exercise in the fresh air. And volunteers help to cook up a tasty shared lunch on Wednesdays too.
When: Wednesdays 10am to 3pm. Sundays 11am to 3pm. We also sell plants and produce at the farm on Sundays.
How: Any new vounteers must attend an induction on the farm. Please make sure to wear sturdy foodwear and outdoor clothing.
If you've never volunteered with us before and would like to volunteer on a Wednesday please come along to an induction session between 10am and 12pm. Once you've completed the induction you are welcome to volunteer with us for the full day 10am to 3pm in future weeks.
Who: Everyone is welcome to volunteer but any volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Where: Growing Communities Dagenham Farm, Luke Allsopp Square/Central Park Nursery, Rainham Road North, RM10 7EJ. The farm is signposted from Luke Allsop Square and from Central Park.
