Get involved

Gorgeous Gorse Hill Needs You

We know that everyone is busy and can’t always commit to lots of activity, but if everyone does what they can manage, what they love, what they are interested in and what they are good at, collectively we can make Gorse Hill gorgeous.

There are lots of ways you can get involved.

Level 1:

  • Come along to one of our organised gardening activities. They last an hour, but if you can only commit to 10 minutes or so, that’s fine, we welcome and appreciate any involvement you can offer. All equipment is provided. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit muddy.
  • Want to help, but can never attend a planned activity? No worries! Get involved at a time that suits you. Contact GGH for more information.

“I was signed up to GGH for years before going along to the Avondale gardening site. I was a little nervous at first, and didn’t know really what to expect, but everyone was friendly and welcoming, and I felt great afterwards! Like I’d had a mini workout!”
