When you volunteer for the Charterhouse you are a part of our community – a vibrant mix of people from all walks of life, dedicated to continuing the aims of a four-hundred-year-old charity. And, like them, you will enjoy the security of our walled site, the gardens, and many other facilities and social opportunities.
The contribution of our volunteers is incredibly important, and we value the difference that they make to our community. Volunteering opportunities include working in our museum, assisting in maintaining our gardens, and befriending residents in our registered care home.
We are currently seeking enthusiastic and experienced garden volunteers, to join our team in caring for the beautiful gardens here at the Charterhouse. Enclosed within the Charterhouse walls, the gardens provide an oasis of green and calm for our Brothers and residents, and they are regularly enjoyed by members of the public attending tours and events.
Keeping the gardens well maintained and looking full and healthy throughout the year is extremely rewarding, and our garden volunteers are essential to making that happen. No professional gardening experience is necessary, but an energetic attitude, a practical nature, and a keen interest in plants and gardens are extremely welcome!
For full details of the volunteer role, including timings, please see the Garden Volunteer Role Description.
Successful applicants will be invited to come and meet the Gardening team, and attend a practical trial afternoon in the gardens.
