Becoming a Garden Volunteer

Our special garden, which include the Clematis Garden, Cottage Garden, Orchard and Kitchen Garden are cared for by our team of dedicated volunteers who come regularly throughout the season. The team is directed by our head gardener Helen Fletcher who leads the team in the planning.

Volunteers work in the gardens on from 9.30am to 4pm. A minimum of 3 hours is appreciated, although we understand that not all volunteers will be able to work a full day. There is plenty to do in the gardens all through the seasons and extra pairs of hands are always welcome. So come along to learn new skills, get your hands dirty and help make the garden look stunning throughout the season.
