Work Bees

Interested in Volunteering  with us?

We are old!   Theresa’s hips feel like she has been an organic farmer since the dawn of time.   So – the only way we can bring you drop dead gorgeous flowers (and cool the planet with our ecological practices at the same time)  is if we have some help!! 


Enjoy some fresh air. Get some exercise. Learn some skills.  Take home some loot (plants, seeds, flowers…) .  No commitment.  But you need to email us that you are coming!! Sometimes we change things last minute and we may need to get in touch with you. If its raining we will cancel. 

In 2020 we’ll be hosting the following workbees
