Volunteer with us

Painswick Rococo Garden Trust is a charity operated by a small core of staff and supported by a large number of dedicated volunteers. We rely on our friendly team to achieve our goal of maintaining the Garden and helping to develop the educational side of the work we do.

Our shop volunteers maintain and stock our small but perfectly-formed gift shop, which sells a range of our own souvenirs, plus high quality locally-produced food and gifts.

This is a role particularly suited to those who like a bit of shopping and enjoy working as part of a small and enthusiastic team.

Our garden team are expert, energetic and fun - and always on the lookout for more recruits. Our volunteers work Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and you are welcome to come as many days a week as you wish.

If you are interested in furthering your gardening knowledge we can help train you, or you may just enjoy working outside or be keen to support the work we do here.

Whatever your motivation, our Garden Team will be very pleased to hear from you by email or phone on 01452 813204.

We are on the look-out for suitably-experienced individuals to help shape the future of the Garden. With ambitious plans afoot to increase visitor numbers and build a new visitor centre, these are exciting times and we need skills and expertise to help us make the right decisions.

We are delighted to be home to a friendly, warm family of dedicated volunteers who help us in maintaining and restoring our stunning Garden and developing the educational side of the work we do.

We are currently recruiting for a volunteer co-ordinator to help us develop our team.  More information will be available here shortly.  If you have a little time to spare regularly, skills to offer and would like to contribute to our success, please email Dominic to find out more.
