We're recruiting a Head Gardener for Oasis!
Oasis Gardening focuses on two types of activity.
Firstly, we run regular gardening groups which support people to improve their mental health and wellbeing through gardening, being outdoors, and being part of a supportive group.
Secondly, we run a garden maintenance service, across Sheffield, predominantly focused on private gardens, offering regular maintenance and one-off gardening jobs.
