Continental Landscapes mange the social value and volunteering within the parks and gardens on behalf of Westminster Council. We have a dedicated manager on the team who oversees the volunteer sector.
We place special emphasis on working with local residents who may have learning difficulties, be social excluded, have a long term medical condition or long term unemployed. Recently we employed 6 staff on short term contracts who were previously homeless and unemployed.
The St John’s Wood Local Nature Reserve is one of our ongoing projects where we are redeveloping the area to encourage wildlife and serve as an outdoor classroom. All the work undertaken and the ongoing maintenance is done by various volunteer groups.
Our volunteer activities cover a broad spectrum of tasks, from litter picking, leaf clearance, assembling bird boxes, maintaining wildlife meadows and rose pruning.
