We're fortunate to have some great volunteers working with us at Bore Place
Opportunities exist to get involved in many ways - in the gardens, on the farm, with our education programme as well as in the kitchens and office. Some people get involved on a regular weekly basis, whilst others come when time allows or the "right" project comes up to suit their particular skills and interests. We have volunteers of all ages and backgrounds whose support and commitment we value greatly. Below are some regular voluntary opportunities and don't forget to keep an eye on our current vacancies for specific voluntary roles that arise from time to time.
Tuesday and Friday volunteer days in the gardens
We run regular volunteer days in the gardens on Tuesdays and Fridays. Volunteers work in the ornamental gardens of our historic buildings on Tuesdays and in the nearby organic fruit and vegetable gardens on a Friday. We are currently particularly interested to hear from vegetable gardeners. If you'd like to find out more please contact ColmW@boreplace.org or 01732 463255 and ask for Colm.
Conservation and garden task days
If you belong to a group - workplace, club, community etc. and want to contibrute, we have opportunities to work on particular conservation and gardening projects. Whether it's a one off day or if you'd like to come over a period of time, get in touch with Head Gardener Marigold, MarigoldS@boreplace.org, 01732 463255 if you'd like to find out more.
Education and events
Opportunities exist to assist our tutors with the smooth running of our school (term-time) and summer holiday programmes. In particular, we'd love to hear from you if you can help with the preparation of materials for our visiting students, as well as providing an extra pair of hands to assist during education sessions.
We run a programme of public events ranging from cooking, nature walks, farm tours and astronomy throughout the year with volunteer support. Whether you have something to contribute to event preparation, welcoming attendees, stewarding, participating in activities or helping to set up and pack down after events, we would love to hear from you.
Contact Becky if you are interested in helping with either our education or events programmes. Email BeckyB@boreplace.org or call 01732 463255.
Other voluntary opportunities
We're also fortunate to have a great team of people regularly helping out in the office, in the kitchens and in reception at Bore Place. A great way of maintaining office and customer service skills or maybe developing some new ones! Get in touch with CarolineA@boreplace.org or call 01732 463255 for a chat.
