Garden club

Thinking of starting a volunteer gardening group at our local country park with the aim of maintaining and improving the park.
Any tips on how to organise and get people involved please.

    I'd start with the RHS which has this info on how to set up a community garden - https://www.rhs.org.uk/get-involved/community-gardening/resources/community-garden which is not exactly what you're planning but will have some good pointers.

    This might be useful too - https://www.neighbourhoodsgreen.org.uk/funding-support

    That's great new's @Eila then all the best keep us informed of how it progresses.

    Flyers and posters in the area asking for volunteers with some contact information might work, then maybe organise a meeting at the site.
