We regularly need help in a variety of ways including constructing or maintaining community gardens and planting fruit and vegetables. These sessions are outdoors, good fun and great exercise. If this sort of hands-on work interests you we can add you to our pool of volunteers and contact you when we need some help. We occasionally recruit a more permanent volunteer to help to provide help in the office. This role involves a range of tasks from practical help as listed above, to helping us out with project administration. Our permanent volunteer position is ideal for people that want to gain experience of the environmental/ sustainable food sector. If you are interested in volunteering for Sow the City email us at
