Something for Everyone

The Nottingham Green Guardians programme aims to provide a wide range of volunteer opportunities. Whatever you skills, experience and interests we hope that there is a green volunteer opportunity for everyone.

We understand that your time is precious so we have a variety of opportunities ranging from one off events, flexible roles as well as regular volunteer sessions.

Volunteering Opportunities

View all roles

Conservation Volunteer

As one of our Conservation Volunteers you will be working closely with our Ranger Team to create and maintain different habitats across our nature reserves and local wildlife sites. There are a wide range of activities and tasks throughout the year depending on the season.


Volunteer Plantsperson

As a Volunteer Plantsperson you will work with staff teams to create beautiful features of planters, raised beds and floral features in various parks. If you are interested in gardening and want to experience new or different locations then this could be the volunteer role for you.


Tree Planting Volunteer

Nottingham has ambitious plans to plant 50,000 trees by the end of 2023. You can be part of a team that helps to plant new areas of woodland, mini Miyawaki forests or community orchards. Sessions available between October and March.


Find roles near you

Whilst we try to offer a range of volunteer opportunities across the city, you might not have quite found the right one for you. There are a large number of independent groups who volunteer in greenspaces who welcome new volunteers that might interest you.
