Tamfourhill Community Garden Volunteers

Are you green fingered? Good at growing vegetables? Passionate about getting more people growing food in Falkirk?
Project Food at FEL are looking for Volunteers to be Garden Buddies!

You'll be part of a project which aims to plant the seed for healthier, more sustainable futures by helping people grow their own food and make tasty, nutritious meals with it.

Through buddying, mentoring, networking and peer learning, we help community leaders and volunteers share food knowledge and get more produce growing locally.

As a Garden Buddy, you'll be matched to a community project with a garden and will be there to guide them as they develop their growing project.

So, whether you consider yourself an expert when it comes to growing food or you've managed to get some herb pots going and grown some garden veggies – we want to hear from you!

How you support and how much time you commit is completely up to you and who you’re matched with. It could be 1 hr a month where you have a monthly planning session over coffee, it could be ad-hoc remote advice, or it could be a couple of hours a week/month of hands-on involvement in the growing process.

If you don't quite consider yourself an expert, this could even be an opportunity to learn alongside your community project if you are looking to build on your own skills and knowledge

Experience required

A aptitude for community building, at least some experience gardening, and a positive outlook! We want this project to be inclusive to all.
