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 are looking for enthusiastic volunteers with the practical skills that make these events successful. We have a small Events' Team that support each other to deliver a wide variety of talks and visits.

The tasks you could help with include:

  • setting up a venue, eg putting out chairs, tables etc
  • erecting temporary signs near the venue so that participants can easily find the venue which in some case could be in a rural setting
  • assisting with refreshments
  • helping a speaker set up their talk
  • welcoming those attending the events
  • being the point of contact during the event
  • directing participants to the car park and directing them to the meeting point.

In addition, we are also looking for people to help us plan these events.  You would join a small group who contact possible speakers, venues and gardens to discuss future talks and visits. 

This is a great way of meeting fellow members and learning more about designed landscapes in Devon and further afield.
