Green Corridor – Allotment Volunteer

Details of the charity: Green Corridor is a west London charity operating in the London Boroughs of Hounslow, Hillingdon and Ealing.  Green corridor offers training opportunities to young people 14-25 many of whom are not in education, employment or training (NEET). The courses offer the chance to gain a nationally recognised qualification in practical horticulture, however, the programme is not just about horticulture, but aims to provide young people with all the basic skills needed for further training or employment.

In addition to the training, Green Corridor also offers volunteering opportunities to people of all ages on our allotment regeneration project in Southall. So if you fancy getting your hands dirty and trying something new then come and join us as we try to turn a derelict site in to a productive community growing space.
