Standen volunteers next to the new trellis in The Rosery

We are a friendly group who meet monthly to help out with a variety of gardening tasks at Standen.

We meet at 10am and normally work until about 4pm depending on the light and weather. We are a friendly group who take on a variety of different tasks around Standen depending on what James, the Head Gardener, needs us to do.

We have tackled things from bracken pulling and general clearing to building our famous Higgledy Piggledy fence and a maze. Whenever possible we like to include a bonfire. Every month is different and it is great to see how much can be achieved by a group in a day.

We would be delighted to welcome new members to our group, no specific skills are needed other than a willingness to get stuck into that months task and a sense of humour. We have a camping weekend and BBQ in the summer which is always great fun. Standen is a beautiful property and it is a privilege to play a part in keeping it looking so lovely.
