Volunteer as a Gardens Trust Community Champion for Buckinghamshire
Buckinghamshire Gardens Trust has been offered the opportunity for a member volunteer to join the GT Community Champions and help
share our passion for historic parks, gardens and other designed
landscapes, and our purpose to protect them, within the local community.
We’re looking for volunteers to deliver a one off ‘Garden History Lucky Dip’ activity. The aim of this activity is to share garden history stories with new audiences and help us to promote the importance and wonder of these historic spaces with more members of the public.
