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.

...new friendships, new skills learned and a feeling of peace and fulfilment down on the farm.
