Gardening for one of our centres

Important notice

Regretfully, due to COVID we have had to temporarily suspend our group and corporate volunteering at our sites including gardening.

However we do have other volunteering activities to help us raise much-needed funds for people experiencing homelessness this Christmas. Please contact us at to find out more.

Opportunities available at respite centres (youth), in our Lifeskills programs (disability) or aged care/retirement villages.

Gardening for one of our centresGardening groups enable an extra pair of hands when it comes to keeping the grounds clean and tidying for our clients. In many cases the transformations of these areas makes a real difference to our clients outlook on life and circumstances.

The day will start off with a brief welcome to the centre and a chance to learn about what Wesley Mission does to support the needs of the clients your group is visiting.

The group is broken into teams to get the work done (eg. gardening, painting, cleaning, skip bin duties). In some cases you will be working alongside residents (Aged Care/Retirement villages) and may like to also interact with some of the residents in the dining room over lunch (BYO lunch).
