Green City Projects
We enable access to gardening and green spaces for mental and physical well-being and build communities that make a difference to our local environment.

We are excited to welcome a research volunteer to collaborate on St Paul’s Woodland Garden, a multi award-winning project supported by the National Lottery Community Fund. This initiative focuses in supporting some of the most vulnerable people in our community. We have transformed a neglected part of a church outdoor space into a beautiful community woodland garden to provide a safe space and opportunities for people to come together to get involved with a range of activities. We would love to work with a research volunteer to perform a literature review that explores academic works related to horticulture and gardening therapy, specifically in the context of addressing mental health challenge.

Time commitment

We anticipate agreeing the time commitment together with the successful volunteer, based on their skills and experience and how the role develops.

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working to keep you safe and supported whilst you volunteer.

You’ll never be out of pocket for volunteering through us – with in-London travel expenses to and from your volunteering guaranteed.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch with us at any time.
