Volunteer Day – Tuesday 11th March, 2014, 1.30pm – 4pm

Broomhill Gardens, Burntisland

It’s an exciting time of year for us gardeners! We’ve been pouring over seed catalogues and dreaming of what we’ll grow for weeks now, but the weather is finally turning and it’s time to get out there and get ready for planting.

This year, we’ll be hosting regular monthly volunteering days at Broomhill Gardens in Burntisland, working on the Fife Diet’s plot where we grow food for our events, and assisting the Broomhill Community Garden Group with maintaining the communal areas of the site. This is your chance to get your hands dirty, learn more about growing in a friendly, informal environment, and be part of what we do here at the Fife Diet.

Our first session is on Tuesday 11th March, when we’ll be tidying up the garden after winter and getting the place ready for our kids gardening club starting again at the end of the month. All gardeners are welcome, both experienced and complete beginners. Please bring suitable clothing for the weather and lots of elbow grease! We will provide all the tools and equipment, and some tea and cake too.

Any questions, feel free to get in touch with mags@fifediet.co.uk. If you’re not able to come to this session but would like to help out at future volunteer days, drop us a line and we will keep you informed.

    Hi Cheryl, You’re more than welcome to drop in whenever you can, it will be an informal session so no one is expected to stay for the full duration if they are not able too. If there is enthusiasm for a weekend session, we can definitely look as holding one. Hopefully speak to you about it on the 11th! Mags

    Hi, I’d like to come along and help out, I’m a total beginner with loads of enthusiasm and grease for the elbow..
    I’m not sure I can make it along for 1;30, possibly 2:30, would this still be ok?
    Also, will there be any weekend gardening volunteering in the future?
    Cheers,
    Cheryl
