Event Volunteers

Throughout the year the Trust organises regular talks and visits to gardens around the county. Members tell us that this is one of the most enjoyable aspects of being a member of the Devon Gardens Trust.

We have volunteers who help in the development of the annual programme of events and those who offer practical help. More ideas make for a more interesting and varied programme, so we are keen to welcome more people to the team to help us

  • identify potential speakers, topics etc
  • find special places to visit
  • make arrangements with the speaker, venue etc.
  • set up a venue, eg putting out chairs, tables etc
  • erect temporary signs near the venue to direct people to the event 
  • direct participants to the car park and to the meeting point.assist with refreshments
  • help a speaker set up their talk
  • meet and greet those attending the events
  • being the point of contact during the event

This is a great way of meeting fellow members and learning more about Devon and its special places. No experience is necessary.
