One of the major factors in Lowther Castle’s rehabilitation over the past decade has been the input of volunteers, particularly in the gardens. They have helped to recover the Rock Garden from weeds, clear the Countess Garden of spruce trees, plant hundreds of thousands of bulbs and shrubs.
By joining us at Lowther, you will have the opportunity to learn in-depth horticultural skills, meet new people, work alongside experts and become part of a successful family-run business. Annual events include a volunteers’ picnic and Christmas lunch. All volunteers sign a volunteer agreement and free uniform is also given.
All volunteers receive the following:
- Free annual pass into the Castle & Gardens after 3 months’ volunteering
- 50% discount into Castle & Garden entry for family (up to 5 members) if accompanied by volunteer.
- 50% discount in the café (includes family up to 5 members when eating as a group with volunteer).
- 10% discount off shop items (excluding alcohol).
