About Emmetts GardenWork in the spectacular Edwardian garden located on the Greensand Ridge, over looking the Weald.
Emmetts is an Edwardian garden owned by the Lubbock family who developed it into a specimen garden with exotic and rare plants. Located on the Greensand Ridge, it boasts fabulous views across the Weald. You will be undertaking seasonal tasks and projects to enhance and bring the gardens back to its former glory. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to learn.
About the accommodation
Nestled in a secluded valley deep within the Kent Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and close to a Grade II listed oast house and former piggery. The bunkhouse is a converted farm building which has two bunk-bedded dormitories. There is storage for clothes under the bottom bunks. There are separate male and female toilets, and the building is centrally heated. The old courtyard provides the garden area which is grassed and has a fire site with barbecue and two picnic benches.
