March/April is a great time to spend out of doors. Come and help transform the beautiful garden here at Chisholme from its winter dormancy to the buzzing potential of the year ahead; potatoes, onion setts, broad beans, peas and root crops will be waiting to be planted out of doors, and in the tunnels, salad, herbs and summer crops can be seeded.

Activities will be varied, with work also in other areas such as woodland, house and kitchen.

Experience the joy of living and working in a place dedicated to supporting the discovery of our own potential. In addition to working with your hands you are invited to take part in conversation and study, meditation and other supportive activities, so you can give space to yourself, and your own questions.

Chisholme is an amazing place to volunteer. You can learn great new skills and really feel appreciated for who you are and what you do.
