Volunteering

Volunteering

Volunteering provides opportunities to meet new people, make friends, learn new skills and advance your career as well as making you feel happier and healthier. Volunteering with us also allows you to connect with your community and make the garden a better place for everyone to enjoy in 2022.

Our volunteering opportunities can help you develop specific skills and will provide valuable work experience or can simply be a warm community of people to spend time with.

You can help us with our development and maintenance activities whilst benefitting from spending time in nature. Our volunteers have had the opportunity to make connections with new people, grow confidence and gain a real sense of achievement whilst learning new skills. There are opportunities for everyone, based on your interests and abilities!

If you have any questions please do not hestiate to Contact Us.
