Location: Gunnersbury Park Museum, Popes Lane, London, W3 8LQ (see map)

Travel: Acton Town station. Gunnersbury Park bus stop.

Start date: Ongoing

What will I be doing?

  • This volunteer role will be based within Gunnersbury park, a beautiful 170+ acre site that is home to a wide collection of local, heritage and exotic plants and trees.
  • There is also a Community Kitchen Garden that is situated within one of the original walled gardens that once provided Gunnersbury’s occupants with edible produce and cut flowers.
  • This role will involve helping to maintain the whole park, carrying out practical landscape management techniques and helping visitors enjoy their visit.

What impact will this have?

  • Volunteers have been developing the site since 2012 and are essential to maintaining the garden as an invaluable resource for our Learning programme.
  • Volunteers will have an exciting opportunity to meet new people, learn new gardening skills and to help grow the historically themed Park gardens in a really hands-on capacity.
  • This is a lovely opportunity to connect with nature in a chemical free environment, with the support of our highly skilled Head Gardener.
