We have various volunteering opportunities at MUD. We cater for all ages and abilities across our projects and are happy accepting volunteers who would just like to help out as a one off or become a regular. Some of our volunteers have been with us since the start and are now employees. You can become part of our volunteer program at Platt Fields Market Garden, help maintain our containers at PATCH NOMA and The Landing or offer up your skills remotely by helping with things such as marketing, blog, social media, policy creation and community outreach. We're building a community at MUD and want you to be a part of it. We also offer internships and work placements with potential future employment with us as we grow. Please see below for more details on our current opportunities.
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak we are now required to register all of our volunteers
to comply with Track and Trace and ensure the safety of all of our volunteers.
If you would like to volunteer, please download our Volunteer Handbook here.
Once you have read the handbook and feel you are suitable to volunteer with us,
have a look at our opportunities below and fill out our Registration Form here.
We will attempt to contact everyone who registers but due to staff shortages and volume
of registrations we might not be able to. Thank you in advance from MUD.
Our volunteering programme at Platt Fields Market Garden gives you the opportunity to support the work of our flagship Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) project. You can gain experience in growing, maintaining and harvesting vegetables as well as a range of other activities from woodwork to running a market stall. No previous horticulture experience is necessary.

Volunteering at PATCH NOMA involves a 2 hour workshop every Thursday afternoon. We cover different aspects of container gardening in the city and have special events throughout the year. We encourage our volunteers to look after the garden whenever they feel, as it is public and accessible at all times.

Ridgeway Street Community Garden has been designed and planted by MUD to increase the biodiversity of the area and give the local community a beautiful garden to use. Volunteering here involves maintaining the garden through guided sessions with local residents. This is perfect for anyone who wants to get involved with helping the public get into gardening!
