Gardening Volunteers - Harlow Museum Walled Gardens

← Back to search results

Harlow’s unique heritage site, the Museum & walled gardens has many surprising collections and the gardens are a  remaining part of  the original 16th Century Mark Hall Manor. We have been awarded a Green Flag for a welcoming and cared for green space and this is mostly due to the wonderful effort of our volunteers. You will work in a small team to maintain the walled gardens and will help tend shrubs, borders, lawns and hedges for the public who seek peace, beauty and a little bit of sanctuary in this treasure filled Museum.   

What skills do I need?

An interest in outdoor spaces, fresh air, Harlow and gardening is essential. Minor physical tasks will be part of the role, guidance and training will be given.
