Fairlight Hall Garden Volunteers

At Fairlight Hall we offer a volunteer scheme so people can be involved in a variety of areas within the garden.

Volunteers at Fairlight Hall will be able to experience one of the finest gardens in East Sussex which is rarely open to the public.

They will have the chance to assist in various areas of the garden including:

  • Cut Flowers
  • Decorative borders & pots
  • Exotic borders
  • Glasshouses
  • Herbaceous borders
  • Lawns
  • Meadows
  • Nursery
  • Organic vegetable production
  • Organic fruit production

Volunteering is a excellent way to build up experience for a career in horticulture, learn about plants and meet others who enjoy gardening.

The Volunteer scheme would suit those who have an interest in gardens, plants and the great outdoors, or those needing to build experience for a future career in horticulture.

Requirements

Horticultural experience is helpful, but not essential.

After initial training of 6 full days over 2 months we ask of a commitment to 3 full days a month.
