Volunteer at Yorkshire Lavender

 
Every year, many people join us to help take care of our beautiful gardens whilst making new friends, learning new skills and knowledge and sharing a love of horticulture.
During each season, along with general gardening duties, you may be approached by visitors who want to ask questions about general gardening tips but most enquires are about lavender plants.

• In the gardens, our volunteers help us maintain the high standards of an award-winning garden.

• In the gift shop, our volunteers perform a wide range of tasks, from meeting and greeting visitors to assisting with setting up for events and much more. 

We aim to provide a professional framework which volunteers can work safely and have proper support. We are keen to help everyone enjoy their volunteering experience throughout.
