Volunteer at Dyffryn Gardens

Would you like to learn new skills, meet new people and help us to look after Dyffryn?

Thinking about volunteering?

Volunteers are the life blood of Dyffryn, without them we would not be able to keep the gardens so well maintained, open the house to visitors or to help our less mobile visitors to enjoy the gardens. We'd love you to consider spending some of your free time with us so that we can continue to care for the house and gardens and to provide a great day out. 

" I love volunteering in the garden, seeing it bloom in all its glory after all our pruning and planting gives me an immense sense of satisfaction"
- Anne, garden volunteer at Dyffryn Gardens
