We are The Conservation Volunteers (TCV), connecting people and green spaces to deliver lasting outcomes for both.
Join thousands of people and communities across the UK connecting to nature on their doorsteps and contributing to its protection.
Join our weekly allotment gardening Green Gym sessions. We offer free food growing, caring for the trees in our tree nursery, craft and carpentry activities.
Sessions are free and take place every week on Thursdays from 10.45am – 2pm. Come as and when you can. Please wear sturdy shoes and bring refreshments for a 12.30pm break. We will provide gloves and tools.
Volunteering – the benefits to you
Volunteering with TCV offers everyone the opportunity to learn new skills and make a difference to their community and it also offers real benefits to your health and wellbeing too.
Our volunteering activities have been shown to improve your fitness and enhance mental wellbeing by combining outdoor exercise, increased contact with nature and the social benefits of group activity.
Our volunteers are also the first to take home the freshly harvested produce from the garden.
At TCV we love to help people realise their potential. For some that might be getting the most out of one volunteering session and for others it could be the start of a career in community conservation work. And there are plenty of opportunities for those who want to grow with TCV. Many of our project leaders started as volunteers but uncovered a passion for our work that has become part of their life and career.
TCV are here to support you no matter how long or short your journey with us.
We rely on an army of passionate volunteers; young and old, to carry out our vital conservation work all year round – in sunshine, wind and rain! If you’d like to join us in wheeling a barrow, planting a sapling or simply handing out the warming cuppas, we’d love you to join us!
It’s not just great fun, it’s a great way to keep fit too. And most importantly it’s a fantastic way to make a really positive impact on your local community.
