Volunteer At Trebah

Volunteer with us

We are growing the volunteer team at Trebah. There are various roles available including those listed below, however this list isn’t exhaustive, so if you’re interested in volunteering in another capacity, please get in touch.  

Garden Volunteers

Come and play your part in preserving Trebah for the next generation. Garden volunteers play a key role in assisting the garden team with the maintenance and development of the garden. If you have a love of plants and the outdoors and are keen to assist the team on a regular basis, then please get in touch.

We are currently at capacity for garden volunteers but if you would like to join the waiting list, please contact our Head Gardener Darren Dickey.

Visitor Experience Volunteers

Our Visitor Experience Volunteers can be based across multiple areas: walking through the garden, at the entrance/exit or at the beach.

This involves creating a welcoming, happy and helpful first impression at Trebah Garden. We want our visitors to have an excellent first and last impression. Volunteers will also play a crucial role in enhancing the visitor experience by engaging with visitors as they explore the garden. This role offers you the opportunity to learn and share your passion for horticulture, nature, and local history while providing a welcoming and informative experience to visitors.  

Maintenance Volunteers

Play your part in the operation and maintenance of our facilities to help conserve and protect Trebah, both inside and out.

You will get to know Trebah behind the scenes, helping to enhance the day-to-day visitor enjoyment by helping keep facilities at their best. Tasks include helping with deliveries and movement of stock, clearing bins & recycling, assisting in the setting up of various activities associated with our events and assisting in large maintenance projects.

Events Volunteers

We are currently at capacity for events volunteers, but we are looking for more Visitor Experience volunteers

Our events volunteers help facilitate children’s activities, assist with performances in our outdoor amphitheatre and offer support for workshops. There are all kinds of activities and workshops taking place for adults, families and children throughout the year and we’d like to offer more, however we need extra pairs of hands putting these together and delivering them.  

Café Assistant Volunteer

Trebah Kitchen has a vibrant environment that can become fast paced during the busy lunch service. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service providing a welcoming environment for our customers. Volunteers will contribute greatly to the day to day running of Trebah Kitchen by providing exceptional service and having a warm and friendly approach.

Plant Centre Volunteers

Our plant centre volunteers will assist with a planting project which will make a big difference to the area around the Plant Centre and exit for visitors. They will contribute to the design of the planting scheme, aiming to inspire people to garden at home, while reflecting the plants on sale. They will help keep the Plant Centre tidy day to day.
