Over the past 10 years, Edinburgh Garden Partners has developed a unique approach to addressing the risks of social isolation in our communities.

By matching volunteers who are looking for a space to grow with local garden owners who have a space to share, our garden partnerships create meaningful and lasting social connections between people of different ages and cultural backgrounds.

It is the shared interest in gardening and the exchange of skills, knowledge and life experience that make our garden partnerships so special and rewarding for everyone involved.

The newly created position of Volunteering Development Coordinator provides an exciting opportunity for someone who is a natural collaborator to strengthen, connect and grow our brilliant community of volunteers.

This is a fixed term post until March 31st 2022, which may be extended subject to continuation of funding.
