Trying to live green? Volunteering is a great way to start. Whether you’re passionate about sustainability, gardening, or just want an excuse to spend more time outdoors, there are many ways to support the environment as a volunteer. Here are some of our favourites.


Evergreen Brickworks

Located in Toronto’s beautiful Don Valley, Evergreen Brickworks is home to some of the city’s coolest environmental initiatives. As a volunteer at Evergreen Brickworks you can dive into nature with an active, outdoor role or become an nature expert that educates the community. There are opportunities to get involved in gardening, festivals, and special projects.


Toronto Botanical Garden

Fans of gardening and nature are sure to find something to be passionate about at Toronto’s Botanical Garden. Located in North York near Lawrence and Leslie, they have volunteer roles ranging from hands-on work in the gardens and running organic farmers’ markets to guiding tours of its parks, gardens, and ravines.


High Park Nature Centre

Join the mission to spread environmental awareness with the dedicated folks at High Park Nature Centre. As a leader at one of their after-school, weekend, and summer camps to instil the value of environmental stewardship to children and youth. You can also help out in their beautiful garden!


Toronto Wildlife Centre

Interested in working with Toronto’s wild animals? Join the Toronto Wildlife Centre’s dedicated team of volunteers near Downsview Park in Toronto’s West End. There are lots of ways to contribute, from helping orphaned animals in the Wildlife Nursery to educating the public about the species that call Toronto home.


Farmer's Markets and Community Gardens

Farmers’ markets and community gardens are great places to connect with other people who care about the environment. Farmers markets attract people who are passionate about sustainable agriculture while community gardens bring together those who are committed to creating and maintaining green spaces in the city. Find a farmers’ market or community garden near you!


You can find these opportunities on our website—search by “Organization” to find the non-profit you’re most interested in.

Excited to volunteer supporting the environment but not interested in any of these options? You can find more opportunities by choosing “Environmental Positions” from the “Category” list. Once you find an opportunity you like apply using the instructions at the bottom of the posting..
