Volunteer at The College...
Volunteering is key to The College. The College remains largely unfunded byexternal bodies and depends on volunteer assistance for its existence and continued development. There are many ways to be involved with and support the work going on.
How does it work?
You can attend classes, you can volunteer in the gardens, if you teach, we have classroom space available, we are looking for creative artists to turn the entire College into an art gallery, help is needed looking after the core administration and general maintenance of the building, donations are welcome in the form of resources such as furniture, computers, gym mats, etc...

Gardening at The College
6 acres of campus means lots of garden space and we are working hard to transform The College into a green haven producing fruits, flowers and vegetables in abundance.
Saturdays are our open gardening day, come and volunteer and learn lots about different gardening techniques, plants and equipment. Ask for Alice, Kevin, Sylvie or Aeddon.
