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, and with our education programme as well as in the kitchen 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 volunteer opportunities but you can also keep an eye on our current vacancies for specific voluntary roles that arise from time to time.

Tuesday, Thursday and Friday volunteer days in the gardens

We run regular volunteer days in the gardens. Volunteers work in the ornamental gardens of our historic buildings and in our organic fruit and vegetable gardens.

Conservation and garden task days

If you belong to a group, workplace, club, community etc. and want to contribute, 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, we'd love to hear from you. 

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 are very keen 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.

Other voluntary opportunities

We're fortunate to have a great team of people regularly helping out in the office and kitchen too. A great way of maintaining office and customer service skills or maybe developing some new ones! 

How to get involved
