TPL Volunteer 2021/22

This opportunity takes place until 31 Aug 2022

We love to help people get back on their feet through community. On our land we have a veg plot, cutting garden, music venue, various animals, and lots more. Volunteers can help out in any of these areas, there are roles to suit everyone! All of the roles help our users get out into nature which helps them with their mental health and general well being. The skills that volunteers can learn are numerous. From learning how to plant something to building a shed and everything in between. We love working together and we are all learning as we go.

We are always working to improve the site and love to rewild it as much as possible too, to help the amazing wildlife in Sheffield. We have a family of pheasants, a few kestrels and hundreds of birds residing on TPL at the moment. We are always looking for volunteers to help with the hundreds of tasks there are in maintaining and updating our site.
