Mary Arden's Farm
What our volunteers say about their time with us:
... an extraordinary experience and I would not have missed it
Volunteering over the summer between University has increased my confidence
I’ve met so many interesting people from around the world and have loved interacting with visitors
I love being part of the gardening team. The gardeners are a great bunch to work with and very inspirational.
I have thoroughly enjoyed stewarding for the ‘Shakespeare’s Women’ exhibition
We feed our pigs and chickens; look after some adorable goats; milk a long horned cow; milk a sheep.
...new friendships, new skills learned and a feeling of peace and fulfillment 'down on the farm'.
