To assist the Rangers in conserving, enhancing and promoting the appropriate use and enjoyment of the area.
Duties include habitat improvement and restoration, Removal of invasive and non-native species, Practical maintenance on fences, signposts, gates and paths and opportunities to be involved in species surveying and recording.
This is a rewarding opportunity for someone who enjoys working outdoors on a variety of tasks.
This will involve accompanying patients from the hospital ward into the garden, and helping lead group sessions that could include other volunteers and visitors, as well as one-to-one sessions if required. This will involve providing feedback to the Garden Coordinator, as well as staff from the hospital. The role will require flexibility, so that if a patient does not feel like doing structured activity, or wishes to spend time in a quiet space relaxing or simply enjoying being outside in a green environment, that is as important as completing an agreed task.
Training in both horticultural skills, and awareness of the different needs of patients, such as mental ill health, learning disability, dementia etc, will be provided, as well as supervision from the Garden Coordinator.

We have places for 15 young people on a woodland and craft based project to improve Bowling harbour. Volunteers will be trained in looking after woodland and green woodworking. There will then be the opportunity to help Green Aspirations Staff train others. The project is designed to inspire volunteers to connect with nature, gain employability skills and try green woodworking
We are looking for Volunteers to come along and help us make a meaningful difference in the villages, litter picking, path work, ecology, tree care and general conservation.
We hold three events per week lasting around 90 minutes each. Volunteers can come along to all of these or as many as they think they could manage. The work is fairly physical on the event days but we also need help with other stuff less physical like publicity, education and the organisation of these events.
We are looking for enthusiastic Volunteers for our exciting growing project in Peebles. Individuals will carry out necessary tasks required to keep the growing area and its surrounding in good condition.
Volunteers for growing projects will help support the Project co-ordinator and Gardener in all activities relating to the growing patch of land allocated for the project. This will include helping in composting, sowing the seeds, digging, weeding, trimming, raking, mowing the grass, watering the plants, and all related gardening activities. They may also manage the participants who will be engaged in the project and make sure all tools are kept under lock and key at the end of each working day. This role would suit someone who is interested in learning more about plants and gaining skills in gardening. You will be working under the supervision of a lead gardener. This role will require bending and some light lifting.

If you like getting your hands dirty and love the great Scottish outdoors, whatever the weather, then this could be just the ticket!
Every week, we organise practical work groups to carry out various habitat management and estate work around the RSPB site. We need your help to keep on top of essential reserve management and one-off tasks across a variety of beautiful habitats.
Typical tasks include fencing repairs, scrub removal, vegetation management, invasive species removal, ditch clearing and lots more!
All tasks are vital for conservation of important wildlife and habitats - you would be directly contributing to the protection of our countryside - and for retaining good access to, and around the site.
An opportunity to help with habitat management, become part of a small, friendly team and learn about the running of the site, plus be involved with one of the RSPB's most exciting sites. You'll get a chance to enjoy the place, learn more about our plans and really get your hands dirty! You'll also pick up or be able to share skills and techniques.
This is an excellent chance to make a genuine contribution to wildlife conservation. You will gain a valuable insight into the workings of Europe's largest conservation charity.
