Volunteering at Shipley Community Garden
We have regular volunteers at Shipley Community Garden and those that volunteer as and when they are able to. You can contact us here if you would like to find out more about volunteering or simply come along to a volunteering session on Saturdays 10 am – 1 pm. We always have a tea and ‘cake’ break at 11 am. Everyone is welcome and will be met with friendly faces!
You keep up to date with events, plans and progress as well as connecting with fellow volunteers and supporters of the Garden by following Shipley Community Garden on Facebook and Instagram.
Volunteering with SEAG
In Spring 2019, SEAG spent some time clearing the brambles in Shipley Woods to make way for the English Bluebells, which had been declining as the woods are not managed and Spanish Bluebells are more dominant and taking over. We were not able to do this again in 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions but we hope to be able to do some further work in 2021 and volunteers will be needed over a couple of sessions.
SEAG have also been responsible for clearing the entrance at Shipley Woods, which over time had been become completely overgrown and seemed to be a dumping ground for litter. Volunteering sessions run throughout the year to keep the entrance clear and we are in the process of designing a planting scheme.
Forthcoming events can be found on our events page.
We always welcome new members to the group with a passion for the environment or perhaps you have knowledge and skills in environmental issues, conservation, permaculture or horticulture that you wish to share with the wider community.
