Volunteering at Emmetts Garden

The Emmetts Garden volunteer team operate like a family living at the property. They welcome the visitors, care for the garden, and carry out essential work to keep the property running. We simply couldn’t open without them. We’re always looking for new members to join our team. We’re not looking for experts, just people with a passion for Emmetts Garden and who enjoy interacting with the public. If you’re interested, please complete and return our volunteer registration form.

We offer lots of opportunities for those wanting to get ahead. Our Programming and Development internship is a chance to take events from start to finish, from the planning to the day to day running whilst promoting these events on our property websites, through social media and through National Trust posters. You'll get an understanding of the work of the National Trust, improve your leadership and communication skills as you work with volunteers and staff and develop valuable skills.

Volunteer Events Assistant

There's nothing like a fun day out and we are looking for Events Assistants to help make them happen. If you like to meet people and enjoy working with families, have a cheerful and positive outlook even when the weather's against you and you're willing to get stuck in then you'll be instrumental in taking an event from beginning to end and helping visitors enjoy their experience.
