Active Gardeners is designed for those who enjoy keeping active and getting out in their own garden to grow vegetables, herbs or maintaining a small and basic garden area, but require a little support and assistance due to mobility or health issues.
Our volunteer community gardeners will work with you and plan or maintain a small and basic garden area. If required, JCS will even provide basic gardening tools to do the job!
Cost of Service: FREE – There is no cost to access this service.
Supply of general materials, plants, herbs, soil mix, planter pots etc will be the responsibility of each client.
