Gardener

Help us to maintain our beautiful gardens

We rely entirely on volunteer support to create a pleasant and restful outdoor space for our patients and their visitors.
If you are interested in gardening or have some knowledge of plants, are physically fit and flexible to work in variable weather conditions for a few hours a week or more, please register to join our grounds team. Tasks may include weeding, pruning, planting, watering and tidying. Hot and cold refreshments are always provided.

Hours available

A few hours a week would be perfect, on weekdays between 10am and 4pm.
