Discovery Garden Volunteer

Hours: Weekdays
Duration: Flexible

Beautiful purple flowers with greenery in a gardenOur Discovery Garden provides learning opportunities and sensory experiences for young people at WESC Foundation (all of whom have a visual impairment and other additional/complex needs) and others from the local community. We also work with Exeter College’s Prince’s Trust TEAM programme and in partnership with local businesses who bring staff for CSR/volunteer days.

The project includes two polytunnels, a herb garden, woodland garden, glass house, several herbaceous borders and accessible raised beds.

We need additional volunteers to support us in maintaining the garden and taking on a variety of tasks to complement the work of our young people.Inside the Discovery Garden polytunnel

No experience necessary. Just bring a positive attitude and lots of enthusiasm and we’ll provide the rest, including training, tools and equipment.

For more information or to have an informal conversation about what’s involved please email Dylan Cheshire (Discovery Garden Horticulture Project Manager)
