We have a growing group of volunteers who give us regular weekly assistance with school visits during term time. Working alongside our Education Officers, they help us to meet and greet school groups and guide them around the Garden and its collections. Family events
On the first Saturday of each month and during school holidays, we hold drop-in family events which feature arts and crafts, seed sowing and seasonal exploring. Our volunteers help with researching, devising and setting up for the event, assisting families with the activity, and helping us clear away afterwards. Schools' Garden
Our fledgling Schools' Garden has a dedicated group of volunteers who help with maintenance and lead horticultural activities at our after-school Gardening Club. We are currently looking for more volunteers with good plant knowledge and practical horticultural skills to help us look after the Schools' Garden, a key resource for our visiting schools.
Sometimes we just need an extra pair of hands. This might be for digging over a bed in the Schools' Garden, stuffing envelopes for a mailout of brochures, helping us prepare materials for festivals and exhibitions and other office-based admin work. All these tasks are important to us and support us greatly in delivering education here at the Garden.
