Wanted: Gardener Volunteers – Peter McVerry Trust

The Peter McVerry Trust have a garden section type facility based about 15 minutes from Dublin Airport, in Garristown North Dublin. There’s one gardening employee of the trust that looks after their six acre holding.

They are looking for volunteers who are gardeners, or people who simply like to garden to help out. One could do two hours per week or I’m sure two hours a month. More if you so choose.

If nothing else it sounds to me just a bit more logic than an allotment for those with busier schedules who really don’t have the time or even better for some who maybe were thinking of giving gardening or growing your own a go, it really wouldn’t be a bad place to start to learn the ropes.

I also know that the facility has been used for team building days, most recently by some of the IBM staff in helping to celebrate being 100 years old. [see IBM/ PmcV video] and also for the Google volunteer day.

Joanne Lindsay Martin [Fundraising Officer] and Liam Doyle [Gardener] of The Peter McVerry Trust will be guests on The SodShow this Friday – they explain a lot better than I can the work of the trust and that at the gardening facility and volunteering there as a gardener. I will add the audio in here after.
