There are three ways in which you, your school or community or organisation can join us to help us achieve our mission of creating sustainable communities across Ireland.

Our core work at GAP, day-to-day is to enable action and this is where GAP can help you and everyone you wish to support. Through our workshops and programmes GAP can support you to mobilise action today.
Volunteer with GAP
Volunteering with GAP is a great way to provide employees an engaging unique time to contribute their volunteering hours while supporting our mission and learning new skills.
Volunteering in our GLAS Community Garden in Ballymun gives the opportunity to learn new skills in organic gardening while supporting disadvantaged communities that use the garden on a weekly basis. We welcome individual volunteers to our garden. Simply drop down and talk with Sharon, our community gardener. We greatly value groups from businesses who are looking to engage with community groups to support their own Corporate Social Responsibility plans.
Our Community Garden
Our Green Living and Sustainability (GLAS) Community Garden has been serving the Ballymun community for over the past 7 years. Our Outdoor environmental education space is open and welcome to anyone who would like to volunteer and with our gardener Sharon on hand to advise and help you, you can learn new skills and grow your own fruits and vegetables too. The greenhouse features, composting, a grow dome and a rainwater harvesting system made from recycled plastic bottles. We don’t use any pesticides on our crops to ensure our produce is chemical free and organic.
We also welcome skills based volunteering where employees can give their expertise and time to GAP staff in supporting internal organisational development.
