The successful candidate will have a strong working knowledge of vegetable gardening (including growing in greenhouses and polytunnels across all seasons), and have a confident working knowledge of the care and maintenance of fruit trees and various fruiting bushes and vines. They will be confident working closely with volunteers, and have a passion for bringing out the best in each of them. They will be confident when leading large and small groups in both educational and social activities. They will work sensitively with a diverse range of service users.
