We support all Cardiff Met students by offering projects to get involved with in our growing city. With our projects, we aim to increase awareness of local community issues, with you working alongside having a positive impact. It’s a real chance to meet new and like-minded people and to work alongside them on these projects. There is always something to get involved with in, whether short-term or long-term, so please call into the SU offices in Llandaff or Cyncoed to find out more.

Cardiff Met Community garden 

Cardiff Met’s brand new community gardens project needs you!

If you’re interested in gardening, getting involved in sustainable and environmental projects, or just want an excuse to meet new people and spend some time outside, then the Cardiff Met Community Garden might just be the thing for you.

The community gardens project is open to all staff and students and will see existing ‘plantable’ on-campus areas transformed into productive gardens. The team leading the project is looking for people to help nurture both a physic garden and a vegetable garden, and develop new and exciting projects based on the garden and its products.

The project is looking for student reps to join the tram managing the garden as well as general volunteers. To find out more about the project, or to join the mailing list, please contact Jen Evans on jmevans@cardiffmet.ac.uk. You can also follow the project on Twitter: @CMetGarden


If you would like to volunteer but don't think you have time to make a regular commitment then one-off projects could be more suited to you. In the past, we have done a beach clean and transformed a primary school outdoor area.

There are currently no volunteering opportunities arranged, please check back soon
