Action For Refugees In Lewisham – Allotment Gardener

Part-time – 1.5 days per week

12 month contract, extension subject to funding

£19,747 per year, pro rata

We are looking for an energetic and committed person to lead a lively team of volunteers and AFRIL’s beneficiary families in developing year 2 of our Allotment of Refuge. The allotment on One Tree Hill is part of our Food Bank response to food poverty, supporting healthy meals on a budget and sharing learning about growing our own food. AFRIL’s Allotment of Refuge provides a place of welcome, community and calm for volunteers and refugee and migrant families. AFRIL’s Allotment of Refuge is a wonderful safe green space for children to explore nature, wildlife and to learn where food comes from. In the first year we remodelled the plot, built new raised beds, a polytunnel and a flexible-purpose shelter.  Importantly, we shared our learning and knowledge about growing food and shared our first harvest together. 

We are now recruiting someone to lead and coordinate our enthusiastic allotment gardening team. With your knowledge and experience and our enthusiasm we want to make our second year even better.  We want to grow more food to share with AFRIL food bank members and have more people involved in our food growing sessions.
