Regular Help

Open Garden's Coordinator


Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s Open Gardens programme is co-ordinated and run entirely by volunteers, right from locating suitable gardens, liaising with the garden owners, checking that all the necessary criteria are in place, and then of course, facilitating the big day itself. We’re looking for a new co-ordinator to join this wonderful team.

What's involved?

We're looking for an individual to 

Take a lead role in coordinating the planning, delivery and review of a county-wide Open Garden scheme working closely together with other volunteer co-ordinators and the lead officer to ensure this happens.

Take a lead role to co-ordinate a specific number of Open Garden days (usually 3), working closely together with the garden owners and the volunteer team to co-ordinate and deliver a successful Open Garden

Why get involved?

Cornwall Wildlife Trust believes in a wilder future for Cornwall, where our wildlife and wild places are cherished for all to enjoy. With the support of our members, we implement projects on land and at sea, conducting campaigns and managing wild spaces to ensure nature in Cornwall thrives for future generations.

And we’re also interested in people. We want to make sure Cornwall’s wildlife and wild places remain a constant source of wonder and wellbeing for everyone. We’d love to see one in four people taking action for nature in Cornwall, in all sorts of ways – whether by petitioning the government to conserve 30% of land and sea by 2030, creating a wildlife pond in their garden, or volunteering on one of our many projects.

Nature in Cornwall is declining and needs our help. We’re working to create a Cornwall where nature thrives.

How to get involved?

Please send a basic CV and a brief outline of why you would like the role and why you think you would be a great asset to the team to Sam Lucock via email.

If suitable, you will then be invited for an informal chat and an opportunity to shadow our co-ordinators at an Open Garden to fully immerse yourself in the role.
