Mudlarks Garden

Community Gardening

Larking About is our off-site project giving Mudlarks gardeners the opportunity to gain work experience and extend their skills. A team of gardeners, staff and volunteers maintain the Town Council gardens at St Leonards, Holy Trinity church and the Castle. They are also available for off-site projects such as schools gardens.

Larking About is so important to our gardeners as it allows them to really put to use the skills they’ve learnt at Mudlarks and provides a progression from horticultural training into work. It helps each gardener build self-confidence and develop the discipline to work towards gaining employment.
