Closing date: Thursday, 1st August 2019  


Spend 10 weeks this Autumn turning an old plant nursery into a thriving community enterprise.

Dates: 2nd September - 7th November in Frome, Somerset. 

Edventure: Frome is looking for a team of young adults to work on a challenge to create a land based education project aiming to tackle social isolation and contribute to mental and physical well-being. 

Volunteer team members will work with a client to design and build an outdoor space, develop the service, design sessions for local groups and launch the project at the end of October.

‘'Start - Up' is a volunteering programme with comprehensive training for people aged 18-35. Participants gain hands-on experience in setting up a social enterprise, transferable skills and the opportunity to gain real-life experience of setting up a community business in response to a local need on behalf of a local not-for-profit.

Who we are looking for:

Are you up for a challenge? Do you learn best by doing? Do you want to make ideas happen?

This opportunity could be of particular interest if you:

  • Want to work within the community sector and want to develop leadership and facilitation skills
  • Are up for trying new things and making something positive happen
  • Are interested in horticulture and community gardening
  • Enjoy being outdoors and working on practical projects

We are looking forward to hearing from anyone who feels that they can both learn from the experience, and bring skills and passion to the project. 

We are able to help you find accommodation locally. Please get in touch to find out more.
