Volunteer Support Programme

How we gather and share research relating to historic parks and gardens is underpinned by our Volunteer Support programme, supported by funding from Historic England.

This programme supports gardens trust volunteers and other like-minded individuals in playing a proactive role in the conservation of our historic designed landscapes. It can assist with research and recording projects run within the county-based gardens trusts, and holds workshops to help share our experiences and expertise. Whether raising awareness, training volunteers or building networks the small but dynamic Volunteer Support team is here to help us champion our treasured heritage of parks and gardens.

The Volunteer Support programme has gathered and developed an extensive suite of support materials which are available to download and reuse for free from the Resource Hub. These materials are regularly updated and added to, so as well as checking the collection from time to time, if you have seen or produced a document that you think may be of interest to other researchers and campaigners please send it to tamsinmcmillan@thegardenstrust.org.
