At the beginning of the month I was asked along to give a workshop at this year’s Trellis conference. These annual conferences are always excellent for ideas, inspiration and networking and well worth attending. I thought I would talk a bit about volunteering and offer some of my own experience in recruiting and motivating volunteers. One of the things that I thought would be interesting to show folk would be what some or our own volunteers thought, why they became involved and what they want out of their own involvement.
Initially planning a short video clip on my phone (!) things spiraled into something quite different…With the kind and most professional help of Gerard Lohan and the brilliant participation of Jamie, Di, Jerry, Helen and of course Tunnock we have made a short film to give an idea of what its like being a volunteer in the garden and to explain a bit more about Gilmerton House Kitchen Garden.
