Just some of the many volunteers who help the GardenJust some of the many volunteers who help the Garden


The Botanic Garden is greatly supported in its work by a growing team of volunteers within many areas including our public education programme, welcoming visitors, guiding groups and assisting with the Horticultural and Curation Teams.

All current opportunities to volunteer with us can be found on this page.
We are currently recruiting for volunteers to assist with our Horticulture staff and Curation team. So if you have horticulture skills, plant knowledge and can commit to regular weekly schedule; or if you wish to share your love for this garden with our visitors please click on the images below for more details.

We value our volunteers and hope that they gain as much from helping us as we gain from their support for our work. Volunteering at the Garden can help you develop new skills and friendships, and add to your CV. It can easily fit in with other work and home commitments.

But it also provides an opportunity for us to learn from your experience. So if you have skills that you would like to share with the Botanic Garden that are not covered below, please get in touch to talk to us about what you have to offer.
