With new buildings and an ambitious programme of work, from guided tours to propagating rare plants, there are many ways to support the gardens as a Friends of Highdown volunteer. The work includes:
- Gardener’s support: weed, prune, plant
- Activities support: guided tours, workshops, welcome visitors
- Plants Heritage Support: propagate, label, glasshouse work
The Friends of Highdown is an established volunteer group who assist with a variety of jobs in the gardens. Tasks from the above list can be found to suit most abilities. Any spare time you have could be well rewarded just by being in such a beautiful garden environment.
It is a friendly, informal group who all enjoy gardening and being outdoors and work under the direction of the Highdown Gardens’ team.
If you are interested in joining the Friends of Highdown, or would like further information, please contact us.
