This provides vital funding for landscape-scale conservation projects.

Help maintain the borough’s fantastic Community Kitchen Gardens
Did you know there are over 65 community kitchen gardens in Kensington and Chelsea? Growing from the initial development of 10 in 2010, the gardens have become local hubs for neighbours and growers across The Royal Borough to come together.
To continue the growth of the gardens, and to keep the large sites looking tip-top, the Kitchen Gardens Team are looking for people who would like to help out, build up their gardening knowledge and meet fellow green-fingered residents.
The Team are looking for volunteers in the following roles:
Weeding and pruning, general garden tidying and tool maintenance, greenhouse work, compost turning, planting and/or supporting events across Kensington and Chelsea.
