About Blackwood School
Blackwood School is a large primary school in Streetly. We are very lucky to have a large outdoor space for the children to play and learn, however we desperately need gardeners to tend to the growing and planting areas.
We have an orchard and growing area where the KS2 children grow a variety of fruit and vegetables. We have growing areas in our nursery play area that require tender loving care. We have a quiet garden area which includes, sensory plants, bird houses and is an area which encourages a variety of nature.
The volunteering roles will entail
Helping with general gardening duties. Planting, digging, use of gardening tools, weeding. There will be the opportunity for some volunteers to work with the children afterschool. There will be opportunities for volunteers to repair flower planters, sheds etc.
We are looking for volunteers that could work on these areas 23-26th April to get the areas clear of weeds.
We are also looking for one or two volunteers to commit a couple of hours each week to keep the areas maintained.
Skills desired are
- A passion for the outdoors and gardening
- Experience in gardening is preferred, but not essential
- Interested in working with children
What we can offer you
- An opportunity to make a difference to the children at the school
- For those volunteers who want to work with the children they can teach them their skills and see how they develop into gardeners
