Apply for this role

Gardening Group Lead

The Quarry Arts Centre is a fun and creative space that works to keep the arts community connected and provide a space that supports local artists and the art scene. We are looking for a gardener to come in a help us revitalise our weekly garden maintenance program.

Description of opportunity

  • We need someone to come in and review our gardens/outdoor spaces and implement ongoing maintenance plan for them
  • Create and manage a list of gardening duties that need attention
  • Help direct and support any volunteers who put their hand up to help with gardening (we previously had a weekly group but due to unforeseen situation our group leader was not able to continue and the group has fallen away, we would love to establish this again with your support)
  • Undertake gardening duties

**Time commitment and location*** Ideally this would be 1 day per week for 3 months (although we would welcome a longer term commitment if you enjoy it!)

  • Thorough induction provided
  • Monthly progress catchup will be scheduled
  • Friendly and supportive team environment


  • Be confident with what established gardens need – weeding, edging, etc
  • Be confident to help set other volunteers gardening tasks
  • Able to use initiative and not be afraid to ask questions
  • Be a team player and enjoy working with others

Time commitment

  • The days can be flexible to fit with the person (previously it was every Tuesday) but it is important for it to be the same day each week – this will help us to hopefully build a more consistent team approach for volunteers to join in with over time
