Volunteer on the priory flower borders

We have been looking after the flower borders in Gisborough Priory since 2004. As well as developing a medieval herb border and garden, we have replanted the flower borders along the walls and added colourful displays to the tubs around the priory hut.

There is always plenty to do to keep everything looking at its best. And it’s lovely when visitors compliment us on the planting.

If you are interested in helping us, why not come along to one of the sessions listed below to find out more.

Please wear suitable clothing and footwear for working outside. Bring your own gardening gloves if you have some. Bring a drink and/or snack to have in the break. Tools will be provided.

You can find a map showing where we meet for our work sessions here. 

On arrival, report to a volunteer supervisor.  They will show you around and you can meet other volunteers and find out more about the kind of work that we do.

You can phone us to find out more on 07391351757. Or fill in this volunteer form and we will contact you.

Unless otherwise specified, the sessions listed below will be volunteer work outdoors on the flower borders in Gisborough Priory as well as in the woodland gardens. You are welcome to come to any session, for all or part of the time.

Please note that sessions may be cancelled due to bad weather or other circumstances beyond our control.
