#30dayswild – Volunteering in Bristol

Volunteering in nature is a great way to learn about the outdoors, new skills and to meet other enthusiastic people. It’s free of charge and keeps you fit. I plan to take part in various volunteer events during the #30dayswild month of June. Why not give it a try yourself? I live in Bristol so I have listed events in my area. If you are based elsewhere there is usually information online if you google your local park or Wildlife Trust. Most local parks have a friends group and quite a few community centres have gardening groups. Feel free to add any events I have missed out in the comments section.

Every Wednesday

12-4pm

Trinity Centre Community Garden

These workshops are free of charge and there is no need to book – just drop-in.

12pm-1pm: Prepare light lunch together

1pm-1.30pm: Lunch!

1.30pm-2.30pm: Workshop

2pm-4pm: Theory into practice

Learn various gardening, cooking and DYI skills, enjoy the urban outdoors, meet new people and share some lovely food together.Herbal tea on tap!

  1. Brandon Hill Gardening

    Every Tuesday morning 10am-12noon.

    Meet by the depot.

    Join the Friends of Brandon Hill gardeners for some light gardening to help the hill be beautiful. It’s a wonderful place to enjoy some tranquility in the middle of the city.
