Volunteering Hebrides have an exciting project ongoing at the moment, which Neuro Hebrides have a fantastic opportunity to get involved with.
Volunteering Hebrides received funding from the Jubilee Lottery fund, and over the next couple of years, they are working in partnership with UHI, Outer Hebrides to develop the walled garden at the college, to make it into an attractive community garden. The garden has been in a disused state for the past few years, but is a wonderful, tranquil space and plans include developing a vegetable garden, wildlife and wildflower area, herb garden, a sensory garden, sanctuary and covered seating area and community garden spaces for local organisations.
Neuro Hebrides have the opportunity to have a designated area within the walled garden where we can make a relaxing, tranquil, accessible place where members can visit and enjoy.
This is a blank canvas so we welcome ideas at this stage to make sure we create an area for all.
Volunteering Hebrides are running regular sessions in the garden, working with volunteers, (weather permitting) on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday from 10-3pm. A social session with plenty of tea, coffee and lunch for volunteers, and they tailor the work on a given day to the volunteers they have with them.
