Would you like to meet other people, do something useful and creative, take exercise at your own pace in the fresh air, share your skills and learn new ones, enjoy produce you’ve grown yourself…? Community gardens and conservation projects are run by volunteers to offer local people the opportunity to come together to enjoy the physical and psychological benefits of working outdoors with other people and doing something productive. Find an outdoor volunteering opportunity somewhere near you in Kingston to visit and have a go (but check their websites or Facebook pages for updates before you set out).
