Denny Abbey Farmland Museum seeks volunteer(s) to manage allotment

PUBLISHED: 12:35 24 February 2014 | UPDATED: 12:35 24 February 2014

After 12 years Martin, the allotment manager at Denny Abbey Farmland Musuem, has stepped down.

The museum now seeks one or two people who would like to take on responsibility for maintaining the allotment, keeping the weeds down, planting the crops and harvesting them throughout the year.

You need to have enthusiasm, a strong back, like digging, be able to bend and have the time to be able to commit to looking after the allotment.

Whereas no formal knowledge or experience required, the following would be advantageous with lone working:

• Knowledge of plants and crops

• An interest in allotments

• Knowledge of how to use tools safely

If your green fingers are twitching to get started please get in touch with me on 01223 860988 or e-mail info@farmlandmuseum.org.uk

Other volunteer opportunities are listed on the website www.farmlandmuseum.org.uk
