The adult drop-in meets twice weekly and offers participants the opportunity to interact with nature, learn basic horticulture skills and learn about environmental concerns and practical solutions. Participants will help grow, nurture and tend the garden. This volunteer role will suit someone with an interest in horticulture, working with groups, the environment, and/or who would like to relax while learning some new skills in nature.
