There are a number of ways you can get involved! Below are our current volunteer opportunities.


Tuesdays 1pm – 3pm (Term time only)

Our Mindful Gardening volunteer session is designed to improve wellbeing through sustainable gardening activities and nature-based arts. Volunteers support us in growing organic food to benefit the local community, as part of our Community Food Programme. Each week, our experienced horticulturalist Vicki, will guide the small group through a range of gardening activities focusing on organic food growing and biodiverse gardening methods. There will also be the chance to take part in creative, nature-based art activities inspired by our garden. This session provides an opportunity to connect with a community of local people, and develop and practice new skills in a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment. Adults with any level of gardening experience are welcome, from those who are total beginners to more experienced gardeners.

If you would like to take part, you can either book a free place via Eventbrite or email team@paradisecooperative.org.


Sundays 10am – 12pm (see Eventbrite for all upcoming dates)

Come and learn new skills and support your local community during our weekend session. You will learn new skills in sustainable gardening, from seed sowing to companion planting. We garden with nature, and volunteers will learn how to build biodiversity in an urban space. All food grown by our volunteers is donated to local social enterprises as part of our Community Food Programme. This session is aimed at all ages and abilities. Children must be supervised by an adult at all times when visiting.

To make sure the volunteer sessions are safe and enjoyable for all, we ask that all volunteers book a free place via Eventbrite for each session. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment!
