Volunteer Opportunities

 

Open Garden Co-ordinator

We are looking for volunteers to take over and manage our Open Gardens scheme in Buckinghamshire and/or Oxfordshire.

Last year we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of our Open Gardens Scheme, which also became the Scheme’s most successful year to date, raising over £48,000 for the Charity.

Our current Scheme co-ordinators, Tony and Margaret Finch, are returning to co-ordinate the Scheme for 2013 but are also looking to mentor new coordinators as they look to develop the scheme further and make Open Gardens even more of a success in the future.

Tony & Margaret, based in Berkshire, have done an amazing job in developing the scheme across the three counties but are now looking to mentor new co-ordinators in Bucks and Oxon as the scheme has grown so much with huge success.
