Tyfu Dyfi and Master Gardeners

Over the next two years, the Tyfu Dyfi project will be sharing skills, knowledge and training around organic growing amongst residents and communities in the Dyfi Biosphere. We are currently recruiting Master Gardener volunteers to support this work. You will become part of the Garden Organic Volunteer community with access to regular training events and social gatherings. Our Master Gardeners volunteer across many different settings including established community gardens, schools and at local food growing events. You do not need any horticultural qualifications just some growing experiences and a willingness to learn. 
 
 
 
The first step to becoming a volunteer is to complete our Garden Organic Master Gardener Induction course. The first free training will take place at Penparcau Community Hub, Aberystwyth, on 28 and 29 October, from 9.30am to 3.30pm. If you have growing experience and the enthusiasm to share your knowledge with new growers we would encourage you to apply. If you cannot make this date there will be further dates available so we would still encourage you to apply. 
 
Our Master Gardeners are from all backgrounds and ages. This role would suit someone who 
  • has an interest in food growing 
  • enjoys talking about and promoting food growing 
  • would be happy to participate both individually and as part of a team 
  • is looking to extend their knowledge in horticulture 
  • can offer roughly 30 hours a year (2.5 hours a month) volunteer time.
 
If you would like to get involved or find out more about our programme, contact our Coordinator, Jane Powell, on td@gardenorganic.org.uk or complete the volunteer application on the top right hand side of the page and we will be in touch.  
 

This project has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities-Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.
