Volunteer with us

Volunteer days

Olden Garden is open to the public. Volunteer days are open to everyone, not just Garden members. New volunteers are welcome. Gardening experience is not necessary. Join us for coffee and cake/biscuits, make new friends and learn more about the Garden.

Come and volunteer on Tuesdays any time between 10am – 4pm. Maria, our gardener, will offer a variety of tasks.

Or come to a Saturday volunteer day – on the third Saturday of the month when our gardener Caroline will guide you.

Remember to wear appropriate footwear.

Our accessible toilet will be open.

Caroline, our gardener, will lead family activities in the Garden. Come along and sow fast growing herbs in pots to take home. Everyone is welcome.
