Carr Gomm are currently looking to recruit a Community Project Practitioner to work with people recovering from ill mental health and addiction in our innovative Rosebank Garden Service in Kirkintilloch, East Dunbartonshire.

The activities are primarily horticulture based and can involve the following; garden planning digging, planting, sowing, weeding and harvesting. There is also the opportunity for people to learn through group activities such as Arts & Crafts, SMART Recovery, Mindfulness, Music and Cooking.

We are looking for candidates who have experience in at least one of the following areas: training, group work, community gardening, community development, mental health or addictions work.
