    Post: Community Gardener 
    Salary: £26,000 - £28,000
    Location: Culross


    Grow West Fife (GWF) is looking for a great community gardener to join their fab, award-winning team.

    GWF was set up in lockdown 2020 to grow food for anyone in need. Last year their volunteers gave 5000 hours growing fruit and veg, cooked 1000 free meals for people on low incomes or socially isolated, and worked with wonderful local groups like Andy’s Man Club, Fairway Fife and Change Mental Health to make sure everybody’s welcome. Their efforts were rewarded when they won Fife Voluntary Action’s Green Charity of the Year award.

    Now they’re looking for an experienced gardener to help them grow more fruit, veg and new friendships at their volunteer-led, socially inclusive, beautiful walled garden overlooking the Forth in Culross.

    Their ideal candidate will be a great gardener, passionate about growing and sharing growing skills and knowledge, with good experience of working with community groups and people with different abilities and needs. They’ll be ‘front of house’ with the necessary warmth and people skills to get the kettle on and ensure everyone feels incredibly welcome and comfortable. It is, first and foremost, a place of joy.

    Hopefully they’ll be able to share that joy on social media to draw in new volunteers and visitors.

    It’s a Tuesday to Saturday job and salary will be between £26,000 and £28,000 depending on experience.

    How to apply

    If this sounds like you and you’re looking for a job where you can share your passion for growing and make a real impact on lives, please get in touch with [email protected]. They’d love to hear from you.

    The closing date for applications is Friday 17 May 2024.
