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.

Help with our events

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.

Drive in style

Becomes a buggy driver at Emmetts Garden

 Like a good drive or see yourself as a chauffeur then you'll want to look at our buggy driving role. Emmetts is a hillside garden so why not be the friendly face that escorts those less able from the visitor reception to the café. You'll also have a hand in giving directions and sharing some of your own stories
