All Hands on Deck  Volunteer Day - Saturday 23rd March, 23 March | Event in Slough | AllEvents.in About the event All Hands on Deck Volunteer Day - Saturday 23rd March
A volunteering day of gardening and doing grounds work at Iver Environment Centre!

About this Event

We're looking for people who might not be able to commit to regular volunteering but instead can offer a morning and afternoon to spend time outdoors to do some gardening, maintenance and grounds work.

Join us at Iver Environment Centre for a day of gardening fun and to help keep the grounds of the centre looking great!

The session runs from 10 am to 2pm. You'll be making a positive impact on our 2.4-acre site through gardening, sweeping and maintenance. No experience is needed, just a positive attitude and a willingness to get stuck in.

Open to volunteers aged 14 and over (those under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult).

All equipment is supplied, including gardening gloves, but you can bring your own if you prefer. You will need to bring lunch for the day and a refillable water bottle. Tea and coffee provided. Toilet and hand washing facilities available.

A risk assessment is available on request.

If you are experiencing symptoms of covid-19, please do not attend.

About The Host: Iver Environment Centre is located in the Colne Valley between Uxbridge and Slough. It is one of four environmental education centres across the UK which are owned by the National Grid.  Since opening in 1990 Iver Environment Centre has been managed byGroundwork South,  a ‘not for profit’ organisation working with local communities to improve their quality of life.Over the past 30 years, the 2.5 acres that make up our centre has blossomed into a beautiful collection of gardens thanks to the help of local businesses and volunteers. Our site includes a poly tunnel rainforest, an orchard, woodland area with a fire pit, two very fruitful allotments, and in October 2019 we unveiled our new Early Years corner with a mud kitchen built by corporate volunteers.We offer a range of activities andeducation sessionsdesigned to inspire people to explore and reconnect with nature. We engage people of all ages and abilities through holiday activities, curriculum linked education sessions for schools and a variety of volunteering opportunities.Our education staff and volunteers deliver a range of nature based education sessions for children in the local area. We cover topics such as food growing, habitat comparisons and tree studies suitable for Early Years students through to Key Stage 4, with an emphasis on primary school provision. We also run supported volunteering sessions for adults with special needs twice a week, where they can grow their own vegetables, do nature based crafts and build skills.
