As well as keeping the Victorian Kitchen garden at its best, their dedicated Gardening Team have the wartime garden, a rockery and a nature trail to look after and develop.

This back of house role is for you if you want to be close to nature, don’t mind working outdoors and have an interest in gardening or horticulture.

Key elements of this opportunity are keeping the garden and the grounds clean and tidy, planting seeds and harvesting produce from our gardens for use in the shop and catering as well as maintaining and improving the nature trail. This role is therefore ideal for volunteers wanting to be close to nature.

Skills

No prior knowledge is required, but most of the Gardening Volunteers are enthusiastic about growing produce and share an interest in all things gardening, both modern and historic. Appropriate training will be provided as and when necessary.
