Volunteering at Ness Gardens

If you love plants, gardens and meeting people, come and join us.

We depend on volunteers to help support our gardens and even if you don't like gardening there is always something to do.

There are lots of opportunities for volunteering mainly in our Visitor Centre meeting and helping visitors to the Gardens or helping maintain the Gardens supporting our full time gardening staff.  There are also opportunities with administration, Friends of Ness Gardens, botany, archiving, weddings, events and more.

We usually ask for half a day a week - but if you want to do more you would be welcome!


Volunteer benefits

The experience of working with people in a stunning environment.

Once you have completed 50 hours you will be able eligeble for a staff support card which allows yourself and a friend into the gardens for FREE whenever you like, occasional special offers in the shop, as well as invites to special events.
