Volunteer opportunities at Dyffryn Gardens
Would you like to learn new skills, meet new people and help us to revive and look after Dyffryn Gardens? Why not consider joining us as a volunteer?
Thinking about volunteering?
Volunteers are the life blood of Dyffryn, without them we would not be able to keep the gardens so well maintained and to help less mobile visitors to enjoy them.
We'd love you to consider spending some of your free time with us so that we can continue to care for the house and gardens and to provide a great day out.

The gardens at Dyffryn are undergoing an ambitious garden revival. From forlorn to fabulous we are restoring the gardens back to their original design and splendour. We need you to help us make this happen, from fundraising volunteers to garden volunteers and room hosts there are plenty of ways to get involved and help Dyffryn to become the best Edwardian garden in Wales.
