As the places fill up on our exciting new Master Gardener training at the beginning of March, we are urgently seeking applicants from Sedgemoor in particular from Bridgwater, Highbridge and Burnham, Cheddar and Axbridge.
"Around the country, thousands of people have been supported to grow their own with the help of 400 Master Gardeners, and now is the time to get Somerset skilled up to grow their own!", says Linda Hull who is co-ordinating the project.
“The programme works by offering individuals and communities free advice and mentoring. The idea is to enthuse people about food growing whilst offering the support that they need along the journey.”
The charity are looking for volunteers with at least two years food growing experience who can help other families and households to start growing their own as well as promote food growing to their community at events, talks, via projects and more. Volunteers offer half a day per month or 30 hours over the year and get additional training in growing techniques.
The next induction training takes place on Saturday and Sunday, the 2nd and 3rd of March and applications are welcome now. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application pack or see www.incredible-edible-somerset.ning.com/page/master-gardeners for more information.
