Volunteer teams

Ever since its foundation, the National Garden Scheme has been primarily organised and managed by volunteer teams. Without them, and the generous donation of their time, expertise and enthusiasm, there would be no National Garden Scheme.

The teams are organised on a county-by-county basis throughout England and Wales. Each team is headed by a County Organiser and includes a number of Assistant County Organisers, as well as a Treasurer, Publicity Officer and various other possible roles. Currently there are some 375 volunteers included in these teams.

The volunteers find gardens to open in their county and look after the garden owners – who are also supporting the National Garden Scheme on a voluntary basis. They organise collecting the donations from the gardens, and help with the administration and promotion of the gardens at different times of the year.
