A exciting, yet challenging position, for a Team Leader in charge of the growing of vegetables in the Copped Hall Walled garden has arisen. The 4 acre Walled Garden and its Greenhouses became part of the Copped Hall Trust estate in 1999 and since then the volunteers have taken the garden from complete dereliction to its now celebrated status.
The growing of Flowers, Fruit and Vegetables in the Copped Hall Walled Garden is achieved entirely by dedicated volunteers, with various levels of horticultural skills, often in Greenhouses that are still in the process of restoration. The candidate would need to be able to work as part of a Team but be in sole charge in the growing of vegetables.
The candidate would need the following skills;
The candidate would be expected to attend most Sunday mornings when the majority of volunteers are on site, especially so when Copped Hall is open to the public, when attendance for most of the day would be required. In addition the equivalent of 2 days mid week would be needed especially in the summer, to ensure watering and other maintenance duties were performed.
