Gardening is a physically demanding role with varying levels of commitment. It’s a way to get creative and be hands on in the great outdoors. RHS Gardens often need voluntary gardeners to join their garden teams, and historic and cultural sites such as The Brunel Museum rely on gardeners to help maintain their grounds.
You could also take on a volunteering role that helps to protect and preserve natural spaces. For example, National Trust recruit volunteers to cleanup beaches and help to maintain their natural beauty.
With the population continuing to grow, it is more important than ever that we pay attention to the impact we are having on our environment with respect to litter, pollution, and general scarcity of resources. By volunteering your time to help enhance the natural beauty of a space (either regularly or on a one-off occasion), you can help make our planet a nicer place to be.
