Help us to create and look after the wildlife garden at Arne. We want to give nature a home around the shop and cafe and showcase how people can help to save nature in their own back garden.

You will need... • Good general knowledge and experience of gardening and horticulture • An ability to carry out some manual work e.g.. weeding, digging and general manual handling • A willingness to work outside in a range of weather conditions • Able to use initiative • Approachable and friendly • A general enthusiasm for nature

Your time

Flexible - but 1 day per week desirable
All year round

What's in it for you?

Be a part of this exciting project, contributing your own ideas to the design of the garden. You will work as part of a small team to maintain and care for it as it grows and matures. It's also a chance to get outside in the fresh air, keep fit and learn some new skills.
