Volunteering in the garden

Our team of dedicated gardeners are responsible for the maintenance and development of the formal and informal gardens at Goddards. Their role often involves traditional gardening activities such as planting new trees and flowers, pruning seasonal borders, mowing the lawn, weeding and collecting leaves. It's a never ending task to care for the gardens and volunteers are crucial to help the gardeners do their work.
