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.
The Guild has its own roof garden above the shop where we grow a range of flowering plants that our bees can enjoy plus a range of edible crops for students to enjoy too! We garden is maintained by our dedicated volunteers, whose work is essential to caring for and cultivating the plants. The garden changes with the seasons, and so do the different tasks needed to care for the garden - so there's always something different going on up there.
This role is designed for volunteers who have attended a few sessions as a Roof Garden Volunteer. If you think you might be interested in becoming a leader, but you haven't been to the roof garden before please apply to be a Roof Garden Volunteer first. Come along to a few sessions and then we will provide training so that you can become a Roof Garden Leader.
In addition to our volunteers that generally help out, we need volunteers who are prepared to lead the Roof Garden. These volunteers will assist in planning out what will be grown through the year and delegating tasks to other volunteers, as there are often several jobs that need doing at once. This is a great chance to be able to see your own ideas come into fruition as the garden develops over the spring and summer months. Roof Garden Leaders will also help to plan social events for volunteers such as picnics and potluck meals made with our vegetables.
If you are looking to develop your leadership and project management skills, this is the role for you! You can develop these skills in a relaxed setting, with the support of the Green Guild who will always be on hand to help. It is especially relevant if you see yourself in a career in the environmental and sustainability sectors, or people-oriented and educational roles such as teaching.
