Inspired to get your hands dirty this weekend? How about lending a hand at one of your local farms or community gardens? The Donate A Day campaign (organised by the Federation of City Farms & Community Gardens, who kindly blogged for us earlier this week) is a great way to get in touch with your rural roots and meet new people that also feel passionate about taking part in community life. Don your most fashionable wellies and waterproofs and head down with family and friends this weekend to meet the animals and plant some organic veggies! Volunteering your time will not only help the veg and flowers grow, but also your family and community.

If you want to volunteer at one of these special green spaces, then “donate a day” to help out down on the farm or in the vegetable patch. Details can be found on the Federation of City Farms & Community Gardens website.

We’d love to see how you get on as a volunteer at a community farm or garden, so share your stories and pics on our Facebook page, the blog, or Twitter.

    It’s important to point out that Donate A Day is a campaign by the ITV breakfast programme Daybreak and not a Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens initiative. It is also imperative that potential volunteers contact a farm or garden directly before turning up to volunteer. Some farms or gardens may not be able to accommodate lots of new volunteers and all will need advance notice from anyone wishing to volunteer. Thankyou.
