As any gardener will tell you, getting outdoors into the fresh air is great for your physical and mental wellbeing.
It improves people’s physical and mental health by gently increasing their activity levels, working alongside others.
We are currently looking for several allotment volunteers to help at our various plots throughout Suffolk. Allotment volunteers attend regular weekly sessions to help tend and organise a successful allotment project helping people to improve and maintain their physical and mental wellbeing.
