Urban Roots is a thriving environmental and health improvement organisation.  Over the past ten years we have worked with local residents and organisations to establish a network of community garden spaces across the Southside of Glasgow.  We are passionate about the benefits that community gardens bring to improving local environments, promoting community cohesion and supporting the health and well-being of people of all ages.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic person to coordinate activities in gardens at a number of locations, including Priesthill, Carnwadric, Govan and Toryglen.  This will involve managing the weekly volunteering groups at these gardens, which are led by our two project support workers.  Working with other Urban Roots staff, you will also be responsible for organising community events, supervising the delivery of Urban Explorers after-school clubs and organising and promoting appropriate training and workshops, including our Great Grub cookery program.  There will also be opportunities to take forward a number of new and exciting community gardening projects.

You will be required to travel between various sites on a regular basis.
