Are you an avid gardener, or do you want the opportunity to contribute your gardening skills to the maintenance of our beautiful gardens’ We have a site based at Springfield Hospital in Tooting which our students, along with our Horticulture Trainers, have developed and are continuing to maintain. You don’t need to have advanced gardening skills, we’d just like someone who is passionate about greenery and would like to volunteer to support our students with their development in the garden.

The Camden Hub is launching the Healthy Minds Academy to help us build a network of volunteering opportunities aimed at increasing wellbeing through creating events and activities accessible to the whole community. This is a unique learning opportunity in which you can be part of real meaningful change for the community and health and social care sector more broadly. We are looking for people with a wide range of skills, knowledge and experiences who are enthusiastic about improving wellbeing of the community.

Outdoor Education Volunteer

Wild Schools aim to deliver great learning experiences to local primary students through outdoor education.

Using the varied environment of the West Ham Park, sessions are delivered in all primary subjects which are engaging, hands on and memorable. Each session is designed to suit the needs of a specific class in collaboration with the teacher.

So far we have taught over 5000 students outside since the project began in October 2016 in subjects as diverse as maths, art, local history and geography.

Gentle Gardening Volunteer

Make local green spaces more colourful and vibrant through helping with planting and weeding. Volunteering in the sessions will also improve health and reduce isolation of participants by growing food to share and supporting those who need help to get involved or just want to have a chat. Gardening has been proven to have therapeutic benefits, helping alleviate isolation and depression though the combination of gentle exercise, getting outside, growing plants and social interaction.

As a volunteer as a Community Gardener you will assist the Garden Ranger with garden maintenance including composting, weeding, painting and pruning.
