Winter is coming….

Go Back

But that doesn’t slow down the Nottingham Green Guardian volunteers, with various winter tasks about to start, it means plenty of volunteering opportunities (and the occasional fire pit with marshmallows) for you to get involved with.

Winter conservation tasks include everything from helping to cut meadows and clear glades to help wildflowers flourish next year, to working in our woodlands copping trees and clearing pathways as bird nesting season comes to an end.

Our tree planting volunteers have planted over 22,000 trees since the programme began in 2021 and with a further 12,000 planned for October 2023 to March 2024 there will be plenty of Saturday morning sessions where you can come and get involved to green the city at various parks, open spaces and nature reserves across the City.

Gardening volunteers will continue to work across the city to weed beds, prune shrubs and plant new bulbs so that 2024 will bloom. Our community garden at the Forest Recreation ground will have its final session of the year on Sunday 10th December and then return in early 2024 for the spring season.

If you want to get involved volunteering over winter, you will need weather appropriate clothing and sturdy shoes, why not have a look at our monthly Whats on Guide to see how you can get involved?
