Grow Sheffield and the Abundance project are looking for enthusiastic and energetic Volunteers to help create mini-orchards across the city. The project, funded by ‘Trees For Cities’, focuses on planting fruit trees around schools and community groups in Sheffield. If the prospect of creating beautiful, inner-city orchards that can be enjoyed by young and old interests you, then this could be right up your street.
Our volunteers will support Abundance representatives during community tree planting sessions, whilst also helping to prepare the ground for trees, staking and eventually planting the fruit tree. Car or Van for transport on the day would be great, but this isn’t necessary.
Our volunteers will need show a willingness to learn and be open to delegation. Potential volunteers with an interest in nature, ecology and the environment are especially sought after! Previous experience would be great, but this isn’t necessary as prior training around fruit tree planting will be given.
The plantings are taking place on different dates and at different locations and across Sheffield:
