We have recently been awarded Heritage Lottery funding to help restore Brockhole's Kitchen Gardens. Our plan is to bring a re-designed space back to productive life, with the crop being used in the cafe and The Gaddum. This project has three volunteer roles. There's archive and social history research into the garden and its original designer, Thomas Mawson, there's a role to help bring the gardens to life for our visitors, and there's opportunities for practical hands-on gardening too.
Click on the links below to find out more about each role. If you'd like to apply, or have questions about the roles or project, then please contact our Recruitment and Training Coordinator, Annie Duckworth on 01539 792893 or by email - firstname.lastname@example.org.
