Get involved

The Northern Roots charity is creating the UK’s largest urban farm and eco-park on 160-acres of urban greenspace, fifteen minutes on foot from Oldham town centre, a unique new community resource and visitor destination.

From jobs and business enterprise opportunities to creative commissions and Urban Farm & Environmental volunteering, opportunities to get involved in bringing Northern Roots to life will be shared here.

All opportunities will be shared on Northern Roots’ social media platforms when live. Follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for regular updates.
