Do you care about the environment and are you interested in learning how to care for plants? There could be an opportunity right under your nose to create or support a local community garden!

The role

Roll up your sleeves to grow, tend, and nurture plants with a group of friends or a pre-existing gardening group!

You will need to do some research (identify a suitable location / suitable plants to start a community garden) or you could explore existing gardens and offer your support to help them flourish. It can look like growing seedlings to donate, assisting with watering duties, or even de-weeding at your school or in a community area (when it's needed) - You decide!
