Many of the city's neighbourhood parks are cared for by locals in partnership with urban rangers. Find out how you can help.
Some local volunteer groups run working bees once a month in their neighbourhood reserves and always welcome newcomers. Others hold one-off events at key times of the year where they invite more hands to join them for larger jobs such as planting days.
During autumn, winter and spring, volunteer work is often focussed around planting, weeding and mulching.
In summer work is mainly weeding, watering and litter removal.
Bring sturdy footwear, a bottle of water, snacks and warm clothes. Some gloves and spades are provided but bring your own if you have them.
