Our Volunteer Team
Love being outdoors, then you would love working here.
THE OASIS is a Social and a Therapeutic Garden set up primarily to help young people from 16-23 overcome lifes challenges, whatever they are for them. Monday however, is gardening day when able and less able, of all ages, come together to maintain and develop the garden. It involves normal garden activities like digging, planting, weeding and watering, but there is also DIY and maintenance jobs like painting, putting up sheds, creating raised beds etc, while less active volunteers get involved in making tea!
THE OASIS is perfectly situated, a short bus journey from the city and in rural peace, on the outskirts of Cherry Willingham. It is made up of vegetable growing garden, a soft fruit garden, a rose garden, a small orchard and a wild life garden. It also has hens and 3 cats called Meryl, Cheryl and Beryl.
