Gardening and Litter-picking

Our regular volunteering sessions are a great way to get outdoors, meet some neighbours and help care for the park.

Join us for litter picking every Wednesday at 10am. Meet at the Hut next to the Community Garden and stick around for a cuppa and a chat afterwards.

We also run group gardening sessions on select Saturday mornings each month. We focus on projects that improve areas of the park like the labyrinth flower beds or wildlife garden. Regular tasks include weeding, watering, pruning and planting. Take a look at our What’s On page to find the details of upcoming sessions.

No experience is needed for any activities. For more information please email volunteering@friendsofruskinpark.org.uk.
