Working as a volunteer in the garden can be hugely rewarding and could involve anything from planting to pruning, to digging to weeding. It’s a great way to spend some time outdoors, meet new people and an opportunity to really make a difference. If you have green fingers or an interest in gardening and could spare a couple of hours each week, we’d love to hear from you.

We’ll provide the tools and manageable tasks to suit your interests and skill set, as well a lunch in the Undercroft tearooms.

Do drop us a line if you’d like to know more:
