Working together to maintain, improve and promote our shared spaces for all to enjoy.
Volunteering offers you an opportunity to build new skills, meet new people, use your existing skills to benefit others and to gain valuable work experience. Watch our short volunteering video to find out more.
The work of volunteers is essential in many ways to the management and success of local green spaces and we are always keen to welcome more willing volunteers on board! Find out more about volunteering over at our volunteers blog.
Groups to join
There are lots of opportunities for volunteers in the greenspaces around Perth & Kinross. Please contact us or have a look at joining one of the groups below:
Take A Pride in Perth and Kinross (in bloom groups)
Bloom group activities combine social interaction and physical activity to generate opportunities for improving wellbeing with activities that foster pride of place and belonging for our communities.
There are 50+ groups covering the length and breadth of the Perth and Kinross area all with the common aim of improving the quality of their local environment by encouraging horticultural activity, environmental responsibility and community participation.
The Take A Pride in Perth and Kinross Association helps bloom groups to deliver ambitious environmental projects details of which can be found on the Welcome to Take a Pride in Perth and Kinross (prideinperthshire.co.uk) website.
Friends of Cemeteries groups
There are a number of groups supported by Greenspace helping with a range of tasks such as bulb planting, helping to main shrub beds, painting gates and railings as well as other tasks to complement the regular maintenance carried out by the council. Anyone interested should contact CommunityGreenspace@pkc.gov.uk.
South Perth Greenspaces Group
TayARG (Tayside Amphibian & Reptile Group).
Recent surveys across Tayside show that large numbers of amphibians fall into and drown in roadside gullypot drains. We need to know where these locations are and need surveyors to help find them. Can YOU help?

Community Greenspace offers support to over 20 community gardens, allotments and orchards throughout the Perth and Kinross area, some of which are often on the lookout for volunteers, including:
- Alyth Community Orchards
- The Kinross Potager Garden
- Horner's Plot in Perth
