About this opportunity
Leading guided walks of the garden for visitors in order to enhance their experience at Dartington.
The gardens at Dartington Hall are world class Grade II* listed and are open, free of charge, all year round. Although the history of the gardens goes back several hundred years, it was not until Leonard and Dorothy Elmhirst arrived in 1925 that its true potential was realised.
The gardens are a special place of peace and tranquility and are open as a place for anyone to come to, relax in, and be inspired by.
Time: Garden Tours will run once a week from August to mid-October. We envisage each volunteer will lead one 1-hour guided walk each month.
Tasks: To lead guided walks and provide visitors with information about the gardens and their heritage.
What are we looking for?
This role will suit people who:
- Are enthusiastic and knowledgeable about gardening and/or Dartington and enjoy sharing this with others,
- Have good oral communication skills
