Foxburrow Farm, near Woodbridge is a busy Learning Centre for Suffolk Wildlife Trust. The Barn Garden is a favourite learning space for families and school groups. It is provides an inspiration for other gardeners wishing to attract wildlife to their garden. The garden features flower beds stocked with many pollen and nectar-rich native species, areas of long grass, log piles and raised beds. 

The role of wildlife gardener will involve general garden maintenance, such as keeping the flower beds tidy (but not too tidy!), pruning and tending the herbs and vegetables.

This is a perfect opportunity for someone looking to build their wildlife gardening experience, it isn’t necessary to have a great knowledge of plants as there are staff and volunteers on-hand who can advise. As a garden volunteer you will meet like-minded people, learn more about gardening in a wildlife friendly way and learn more about the wider work of Suffolk Wildlife Trust. Importantly, coffee, tea and biscuits are provided!

This is a flexible role, we are looking for people who can commit to Friday mornings, 9.30am-12noon once a month. If you are interested, please get in touch and we will arrange for you to come in and have a look around the garden.
