Volunteer Engagement

Together we can make a difference

Please come and visit us at our nursery!

Becoming a volunteer is simple-arrange a time with us to come and have a stroll and chat through the nursery to get acquainted, then an induction (approx. 2 hrs), a little bit of training and then the hours, days and duties are up to you! You will be happy knowing that every weed you pull out, or every plant you put in a pot, is going towards helping green the planet and creating sustainable landscapes.
