How many places are on offer?
Green's Windmill is a restored and working 19th Century tower mill. Built in 1807 by the father of celebrated scientist and mathematician George Green, it is the only city-based working windmill in the UK.
The Green’s Windmill Trust have recently taken on an allotment next door to the mill, with the intention of renovating the plot. This would extend our currently limited outdoor space, and offer beautiful grounds for the public to enjoy.
Whilst helping to care for our allotment, tasks will include:
All aspects of garden maintenance (no machinery used) such as weeding, planting, sweeping etc.
Development of the allotment project
Attend meetings as necessary
No gardening experience needed.
Skills and Qualifications:
We are looking for people with an interest in gardening to join our group of friendly and enthusiastic volunteers to develop and tend this plot with a pleasant and helpful manner and willingness to learn.
We also require volunteers with enthusiasm for history and heritage, and an ability to work in a team with volunteers and site staff.
We will make the most of your individual skills and experience and your time with us will be rewarded in many ways. We will celebrate our achievements as a team with volunteer parties, project launches and occasional incentives such as day trips

Green's Mill is situated on a hilltop 30 metres from the main car park off Windmill Lane. There are several flights of steps between the car park and windmill.
However, car and minibus parking is available for wheelchair users and visitors with mobility.
With the exception of the upper floors of the windmill, everything is at ground level.
