Help make Rosie’s Garden grow through volunteering

We are looking for volunteers to join Turning Point Scotland and help them to make Rosie’s Garden a successful enterprise.

Rosie’s Garden will be launched in April 2017 and hope to offer adults with learning disabilities a place to develop horticultural skills and employability prospects. 

Volunteers can bring a depth and breadth of experience and knowledge which would enrich the opportunities and experiences we create for those we support. Volunteers would be asked to assist in the day to day management of a garden, activities ranging from mowing the law to maintaining the commemorative seats in the garden. They’ll also assist with horticultural learning for people with learning disabilities and other marginalised groups.

Activities volunteers could help with include: plant care, propagation, fruit beds; weeding, feeding, training and pruning – all aspects of developing and maintaining a garden.

Rosie’s Garden is a social enterprise which will extend the work of Turning Point Scotland who provide person centered support in the Perth area for adults with learning disabilities.  We envisage the garden as a service user led, offering social interaction, employability skills, accredited learning and participation in business development.  Service users tending Rosie’s Garden have the opportunity to take part in a Grow and Learn course in partnership with the Royal Caledonia Horticultural Society; we hope to become a recognized centre for the award in the Perth area

For more information about our work or if you’d like to volunteer please contact: Simon Humphreys, Service Manager, 01738 639 950

This is the latest innovation in our family of social enterprise brands including Rosie’s Social Enterprises in Aberdeen and Rosie’s Retro in Ayr offer training and employability opportunities, along with some fatastic original products and services.
