Volunteering

Volunteering opportunities

Our dedicated team of volunteers and students working together have brought a disused and neglected walled garden back to life. Green Routes offers a wide range of volunteering opportunities from participating in a community garden to mentoring our young students.

Some volunteers act as mentors and role models for individuals and groups of students, some work on the Garden, and others help in the running of the Green Routes project as members of its Board of Management.

The Garden provides year-long interest and varied activities allowing people to contribute according to their particular skills and interests.

  • Working in the garden
  • Mentoring our students
  • Animal husbandry
  • Art and craft work
  • Catering for our volunteering days
  • Selling our produce at the market
  • Fundraising
  • Woodworking
What can volunteering at Green Routes offer you?

An opportunity to:

  • Get involved in an inspiring project
  • Meet new people

We recognise that volunteers need satisfying work and personal development, and we try to help our volunteers to achieve this.
