Help care for our greenspaces and wildlife in Abbey. Meet people in your community and help with various gardening and maintenance tasks throughout the year.

Detailed description

What is this role all about?

Helping with general gardening and maintenance activities at the greenspaces across the Abbey Ward of Cambridge.


The greenspaces will include, but are not limited to, a new community garden on Rayson Way and biodiverse space on Barnwell Verge, Coldham’s Brook, Margaret Wright Community Orchard, and Whitehill Community Allotment.


Whether you want to learn new gardening skills, or want to spend more time out in nature – this opportunity could be perfect for you.


By getting involved, you can…

  • Learn more about wildlife and nature in your local area
  • Become part of friendly team
  • Look after your wellbeing by spending time outside with nature
  • Use your practical skills and learn new gardening skills
  • Help maintain and care for greenspaces that are in a key wildlife corridor in the Local Nature Recovery Plan identified by Cambridge Nature Network


What skills do I need?

No gardening experience is needed, just the willingness to learn and participate in physical tasks.


Is there any training or support available?

Lead volunteers will provide guidance and support on safe use of tools, and give instructions on how to carry out the different tasks.
