Volunteer with GAP

By helping out in our community gardens, you can learn new skills in organic gardening, or simply find peace among like-minded people, and beautiful plants.

We operate two community gardens in the Dublin area, to provide a resource and hub for environmental education initiatives in the heart of urban communities. Volunteering in our GLAS Community Garden in Ballymun, or in our new community garden in Blanchardstown, gives you an opportunity to learn new skills in organic gardening while supporting communities that use the garden on a weekly basis. No previous experience needed!

We welcome individual volunteers to our garden. Simply drop by and talk with our community gardeners. Or contact us via our website.

Our Community Gardens

Our Green Living and Sustainability (GLAS) Community Garden has been serving the Ballymun community since 2011, and our GLAS garden in Blanchardstown was formally opened in 2023.

These outdoor environmental education spaces welcome people of all backgrounds and abilities. No previous experience needed!

Our gardeners Sharon and Lee are on hand to advise and help you, so you can learn new skills and grow your own fruits and vegetables too.
