In addition, you will have a good understanding of the community gardening / urban greening sector, with an awareness of key stakeholders and where opportunities might lie.
You will work with the Experiments Team, a small team leading Friends of the Earth’s approach to innovation. We catalyse practical experiments in an uncertain world to ensure a better transition for everyone
