The Green Team

The Green Team is a voluntary organisation providing outdoor experiences for young people, supporting them to learn about and connect with nature. We provide a range of programmes and events for young people to take part in environmental volunteering projects, making improvements to local greenspaces and learning about the natural environment. Young people can achieve a range of awards such as the John Muir Award and DofE Award. Weekend projects are led by highly experienced teams of staff and volunteer leaders.
