Volunteer opportunities


There are different types of Volunteer Opportunity

1. FCSBC Plant Shop and Workroom

 We welcome volunteers whatever your level and knowledge of plants. All we ask from you is a willingness to learn, commitment and a sense of humour.  Wednesday and Saturday mornings, 4 - 5 hours.

All you need is a packed lunch, a drink and some gardening gloves. Wear appropriate clothing for the weather; extra layers in winter, layers you can shed in summer.

We run a Plant Shop at the Botanical Gardens in Swansea selling trees, shrubs, perennials, vegetables, bulbs and herbs to the public. Each Wednesday throughout the year we meet in the polytunnel just inside the gate of the Botanical Gardens any time from 9 am onwards.   We open the Shop on a Saturday morning from April to September.

2. Botanical Horticulture Garden General Volunteer

Volunteer within the Botanical Gardens, supporting the work of the trained horticulturists by helping out with the basic maintenance of the Botanical Gardens plant collections and the general upkeep of the Botanical Gardens. This is a unique opportunity to work with the diverse plant collection within the Botanical Gardens and gain new knowledge and skills.

Activities under the direction of Parks Department staff.
