Hackney-based social enterprise Growing Communities is recruiting three volunteer Trainee Growers. The traineeship runs from April to the end of September. Two trainees will work one day a week and the third will work one and a half days. In addition there will be monthly evening tutorials. You will work with our Grower, learning all aspects of running our Urban Market Gardens.
We are looking for enthusiastic people who are keen to learn about growing food in a sustainable way, and who enjoy working outdoors and with other people. We particularly welcome applications from sectors of the community at risk of social exclusion.
