Sarah’s story

Volunteering at Helmsley Walled Garden was something that I had wanted to do for several years.  This worked out last year and I started volunteering in January 2020.  It is such a beautiful place and concept – the prospect of being part of a team and being involved in something bigger than our own garden and home responsibilities was very appealing.

The experience has been wholly positive and the benefits are disproportionate to the amount of time that I have been able to spend there actually gardening.  I think that it has given me a shift in outlook and increased my confidence in different ways.
