Some practicalities…

  • Please also add

    • Any additional needs that you may have and/or health issues that we should know about.

    • In notes at the bottom, add any relevant experience you already have (don’t worry, none is required!).

What to bring

  • Footwear: your most sturdy shoes please!  Walking boots (or steel toe caps if you have them) are ideal.  We can’t allow open-toed footwear (sandals etc.) in the Green Wood Corner.

  • Lunch:  places to buy lunch are a bit of a walk away, and we have a fairly tight schedule, so best to bring something with you. There are facilities to warm food up.



  • The greenhouses are located in the centre of Brockwell Park, beside the tennis courts.  https://goo.gl/maps/uyutWwpfAfk

  • On arrival, any volunteer at the greenhouses will be able to direct you to the Green Wood Corner.
