Nottingham Green Guardians
The Nottingham Green Guardians volunteering programme enables people to play an active role in their community, improve the local environment and contribute to positive social change.
Nottingham Green Guardians is part of Nottingham City Council Parks Team who manage over 250 parks, local nature reserves and open spaces across the city. Launched in 2021, the programme aims to connect people with mutually beneficial opportunities across Nottingham helping the city to become greener, healthier and happier.
