Looking to meet new people, learn new skills and enjoy some greenspace? Why not come and volunteer at Belville. Our volunteers play a huge role here at the Garden. The work of volunteers is essential in many ways to the management and success of what we do.
Volunteering offers you an opportunity to build new skills, meet new people, use your existing skills to benefit others and to gain valuable work experience.
But most of all, its fun!!
For our volunteers who commit to our 50 hour work programme, we will provide a minimum of 1 work related qualification. These qualifications will be tailored to your interest and abilities and future career requirements.
We have a number of current volunteering opportunity’s and are always keen to welcome more willing volunteers on board!
