Garden Guides provide a warm welcome for all visitors, helping them to explore and learn more about the history of the garden and the Garden Revival Project.

A Garden Guide would be leading groups of visitors on tours around the garden sharing stories of the design and history, pointing out notable or historical plants explaining the work that's taken place as part of the Revival Project and how the outdoor space has been enjoyed in the past.

You would become part of a friendly,social team of volunteers and staff, meet people from all walks of life and spend time in the great outdoors!

What skills do I need?

Are you friendly, enthusiastic, love meeting people and have an interest in gardens?

There are many opportunities to learn so volunteers do not need a lot of experiences in order to apply and an in-depth plant/horticultural knowledge is not essential.

  • Arts, Heritage and Culture
  • Environment
  • Advice and Information
  • Conservation
  • Marketing, PR, Social Media
