We’re Liverpool Guild of Students, the Students' Union for the University of Liverpool. We enjoy bringing students together in a fun and friendly learning environment and giving you opportunities to improve your university experience. We are led by students, and we make sure you’re at the heart of everything we do.
Green Fingers offer you the opportunity to engage with the University of Liverpool Children’s Centre to run interactive gardening and related craft activities. Sessions will primarily be working with the children by running craft sessions and getting them involved with the garden.
If you are interested in teaching, particularly pre-school training and development and the environment this is a brilliant opportunity to get involved in!
Project leaders are the first port of call for all Green Fingers volunteers. They are required to meet the volunteers before each volunteering session and explain the tasks to them. They are also required to liaise with the Green Guild Project Manager and the Green Guild team regarding progress and development of the project and allotment maintenance which wil be carried out by the team of gardening volunteers. The Green Guild staff will provide support to establish what tasks need to be completed each month. Green Fingers Project Leaders are responsible for communicating with the volunteers, updating Guild staff and other students on the development of the project and promoting the project on campus.
