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.

Planting for Spring!

On Bulb Planting Day, Caroline, our gardener, led 20 volunteers planting snowdrops, daffodils, tulips, miniature iris, wood anemone and allium. We hope the squirrels don’t dig them up! Just in case, some bulbs were planted in pots and safely stored in our greenhouse. Volunteers without gardens were given daffodil bulbs in pots, to grow on their window sills at home. Homemade cakes and tea were enjoyed by all.

On Saturday 20th November, 10am – 4pm, we need volunteers to help with leaf gathering to make ‘leafmould’, our own compost.

Andrew retires as our gardener

We marked Andrew’s last day as our gardener with coffee and Jill’s delicious cake. For over 10 years Andrew gave advice to our Committee and guidance and encouragement to our volunteers, helping to develop and maintain Olden Garden as a valuable community resource. We will miss him.
