Corporate volunteering

A group of ten adults are in wellies stuck in boggy mud. They're mucky from a day of volunteering the gardens at Stowe.

The scale and beauty of Stowe is such that it has attracted visitors for over 300 years. Such a vast expanse of garden needs constant work, and we need help to conserve the eighteenth century landscape and keep it looking its best. Corporate volunteering at Stowe is a great way to get to know your team whilst giving back to nature and helping us to look after what we’ve got.

Hidden amongst spectacular views and vast open spaces there are over 40 monuments and temples, including the greatest temple of them all: Stowe House. With the changing seasons and an ongoing restoration programme, Stowe offers a range of experiences and opportunities for corporate volunteering groups throughout the year.

Thank you for showing an interest in volunteering at Stowe. Corporate volunteering is a really key part of our programme here, and helps us achieve so much in the gardens. Last year, over 34,000 hours were spent volunteering at Stowe.

The National Trust is a charity founded by three people who saw the importance of our nation’s heritage and open spaces and wanted to preserve them for everyone to enjoy forever. Over 100 years later these values are still at the heart of everything we do and is the reason Stowe survives  today enjoyed by over 200,000 people each year.

Stowe welcomes corporate volunteering groups throughout the year. We especially need help with tasks throughout the winter, so why not combine volunteering with your Christmas social and host it in our fabulous café?

Your day will be designed especially for you by our team, who will assign your tasks for the day and be your point of contact from booking onwards.

Upon arrival, your group will be met by a member of the team who can give a brief introduction to Stowe and will be able to direct you to key features and facilities.
