Get Cumbria Buzzing. Cumbria Wildlife Trust

We are looking for volunteers to help in our Get Cumbria Buzzing wildflower nursery at Gosling Sike, Houghton, near Carlisle

You'll be helping us sow wildflower seeds and care for the seedlings and small plants in our purpose built poly tunnels.  Some gardening experience or an interest in growing plants from seed would be helpful but not essential.

Spaces are limited, we are especially looking for volunteers who can help staff on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and are flexible working within a rota system. Training will be provided.

If you’re interested in becoming a Get Cumbria Buzzing nursery volunteer please do get in touch

The wildflower nursery has been established through CWT’s ‘Get Cumbria Buzzing!’ project which aims to increase the abundance and diversity of pollinators in northwest Cumbria. The project is funded through National Lottery Heritage Fund, Highways England and other funders.
