Transform urban greenspaces with Ardwick Climate Action

18th May 10:00 to 16:00
Work with Ardwick Climate Action (ACA) to develop urban green spaces in central Manchester. This volunteering opportunity is your chance to have a real impact in supporting the local community. By taking part you will also gain experience in developing green spaces and how to make an urban area more friendly to people and the planet.

Ardwick Climate Actions’ mission is to protect our local environment through grassroots advocacy that engages the local community. Their work encompasses the renewing of green spaces, monitoring pollution levels, and climate advocacy through community engagement.

Ardwick is one of the most deprived areas in Manchester, and much work is needed to reengage and sensitise the community back to nature and the climate crisis that affects all its residents.

This volunteer day will rejuvenate Greek Street Gardens in Ardwick.  ACA need your support to make their vision a reality. You can lend a hand in planting pollinator-friendly plants, cleaning up the site, and installing planters.

Alongside this hands-on experience, you will also get to interact with members of ACA and the local community. This will provide you with first-hand knowledge of urban development and how to create spaces that enhance the local area whilst also building a safe space for biodiversity in the city.
