Job Type: Part-time
Trentham has a team of 30 volunteers, who help maintain the stunning gardens at Trentham. Come along to our open day to find out more about volunteering at Trentham. There are 3 areas of the garden you can look to work on including the Italian Gardens, Meadow and Woodland area and the Eastern Pleasure Garden.
Whether you’re an experienced gardener, or just have an interest and want to learn more, Trentham needs you!
You’ll learn a range of gardening skills within a historical landscape setting with contemporary planting schemes. There are a range of jobs you’ll undertake as a volunteer for Trentham Gardens. Gardening skills are not essential as we will support and develop these with you.
Are you interested in joining our volunteers in the Italian Garden on Mondays, Wednesdays or Thursdays carrying out a range of seasonal maintenance jobs working on planting schemes including Tom Stuart Smith’s perennial schemes, Piet Oudolf’s long borders, and our David Austin Border and trellis walk clothed with climbers including Wisteria and Roses. Pick up gardening skills and experience, meet new friends and enjoy the amazing views of the lake. Come for a morning or bring a packed lunch and make a day of it.
Meadow and Woodland
This is our newest area of garden and so there is probably something for anyone interested in gardening in a less formal setting. You could be involved in anything from clearing new areas ready for new schemes created by Professor Nigel Dunnett, conservation activities like creating wildlife habitats, planting new perennial plants or our new magnolia and tree collections, as well as seasonal maintenance tasks like mulching and weeding. We are looking for Volunteers to join our team working on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Eastern Pleasure Gardens and Show Gardens
If you are keen to work with herbaceous perennials with Kingfisher darting past or flocks of Goldfinches through the winter the Eastern Pleasure Garden borders will be ideal for you. Or you may be interested in tending vegetables and cut flowers in our potager on Fridays.
Induction days are starting at the Garden Entrance at 10.30am:
