Volunteer at Emmetts Garden

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 who enjoy interacting with the public.

Volunteer at Emmetts Garden

Volunteers are integral to our work here at Emmetts Garden and we are pleased to start welcoming everyone back, and also start recruiting for brand new volunteers as well. 

Whilst we continue to make sure we're bringing everyone back safely to our gardens, we're only recruiting for certain roles to help us welcome our visitors, but do check back soon as these may change.

Visitor Welcome Volunteer

If you are the sort of person that likes to make everybody feel welcome then you should think about volunteering with Emmetts Garden. Enjoy a varied day signing up members, answering questions and supporting in reception all the while using your communication skills to make sure everyone has a great visit.

Meet our volunteers

Rather than just taking it from us, why not read about volunteering at Emmetts Garden from our volunteers themselves!

We interviewed two of our current volunteers to tell you in their own words why they started volunteering and why they keep coming back.
