Gardeners and wannabe gardeners please read!

Russ is a volunteer-led and volunteer-driven organisation that has been growing for over 10 years. We’re really proud of what we can achieve as a community.

We are now looking for a team of volunteers to do some gardening at the Hub on Church Grove. It’s not just any garden – we have raised beds for planting, a mini forest outside the hub – and an entire site that needs to be cleared of “weeds” (or what we call “compost food”). There’s even the odd self-seeded oak sapling to be saved from the diggers!

If you would like to sign up for some gardening please:

  1. Check for available dates on the Hub Calendar
  2. Register to volunteer in the Hub Garden or main site clearance.
  3. Read the Volunteer Charter which includes our promise to you and your obligations
  4. Follow The Hub’s Covid-19 rules

This project is for anyone who wants to get outside in the open air, get some exercise, boost your mental health and reconnect with the RUSS and Ladywell community.

We would welcome donations of tools or seedlings for the Hub. Our wish list for donations is here.

We have an exciting period ahead of us and we hope that this RUSS project for members will be a fun way to lift our spirits and help us re-engage with our community after a strange and difficult Winter.
