Become a Garden Volunteer

Our special Garden, which includes the Clematis Garden, Cottage Garden, Orchard and Kitchen Garden are cared for by our team of dedicated volunteers who come regularly throughout the year. Volunteers also help in the glasshouses and as composters. The team is directed by our Head Gardener Lisa Rennison who takes the lead in the planning and maintenance of the garden.

Volunteers work in the gardens on from 9.00am to around 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 Garden all through the seasons and extra pairs of hands are always welcome. Have a look at the different jobs there are to do in the Garden to find one that suits you. Then come and join the team, get your hands dirty and help make the Garden look stunning throughout the season. Simply check out the information sheets and then get in touch.
