Pledging your Time and Expertise
Help us make our limited resources go further through volunteering with us.
- Join Urban Wild Places Pledge Days in your neighbourhood
- Two hours a week would help to keep one of our legacy wildlife gardens maintained and beautiful. Do you have a skill that could help us to deliver the project?
- We need wildlife enthusiasts, gardeners, people with skills in photography, painting and drawing, craftwork to lead workshops for us. 2-3 hours a month.
- Could you spare half a day per week to help us with administration, booking excursions, organising workshops

Donating to Wild Places
The Wild Places Project has helped over 1000 people from communities in Islington to discover or re-awaken the joy of exploring the natural world, and experience the benefits of improved health and well-being that follow. Wild Places has also benefited Islington's communities and its wildlife by creating four legacy wildlife gardens - for people to enjoy and for local wildlife to find a home.
We want the benefits of Wild Places to continue and you can help us by donating money to support our project.

Our Small Campaigns: to help deliver current projects
Wellies & Waterproofs Campaign:
Our friends the wellie makers, distributors and sellers, and those that kit out well-heeled country walkers are being asked to help our Wild Places inner-city communities enjoy the great outdoors - in all weathers! If you are a company with a big heart and would like to make a donation of wellies, waterproofs or any other suitable outdoor gear, we can assure you that we'll find a good use for them. You can contact Hilary on email@example.com or 020 7263 7095
Wellies & Waterproofs Amnesty:
A fair number of families have wellington boots and waterproofs of all shapes, sizes and colours lurking in cupboards, unloved and unwanted, forgotten and tossed aside. We can give them a new home and give others an opportunity to get out there and enjoy the outdoors. You can donate in person at Caxton House Community Centre, Hilldrop Community Centre, Whittington Park Community Centre or the Holloway Neighbourhood Group (Old Firestation) - or just contact: Hilary on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7263 7095.
We are always on the lookout for more seeds and plants:
The Wild Places team are passionate about wild, urban gardening and in helping communities deprived of flowers, trees and shrubs (and the wildlife that naturally gravitates) secure spaces - havens of peace, tranquility and hard work! So, if you ever find yourself with too many seeds, seedlngs, plants or natural hedging - we can find safe homes for these to grow. Contact Hilary on email@example.com or 020 7263 7095.
