Adult Learning Volunteer

Harlow Carr Education Team

RHS Garden Harlow Carr, Harrogate, North Yorkshire


RHS Garden Harlow Carr, the Society’s most Northern garden, has volunteering opportunities for enthusiastic people to assist our education department throughout the year. Harlow Carr offers a wide range of exciting adult learning courses, based in the purpose-built Bramall Learning Centre and uses the fantastic 58-acre garden to engage with more than 800 adults per year.

Our Adult learning volunteers interact with many tutors, staff and visitors as well as acting as advocates for the charitable work of the Society.

Applicants should have a passion for horticulture and working with people of all ages, experience of working in a classroom setting is desirable. Applicants should enjoy working in a range of situations both indoor and outdoor and be reasonably fit (as some workshops require a lot of walking to different areas within the site).

We are looking for volunteers who are available to on weekdays and at the weekends to support the setup of classrooms and liaise with visiting tutors. We ask for a commitment of at least one day a month. We do, of course, understand that sometimes life will get in the way so it is, therefore, important that applicants think about how much time they can realistically spend with us throughout the year before filling in an application.
