Volunteering at Bedgebury - what can I do?

Bedgebury has an exceptional team of volunteers working in the wonderful surroundings of the National Pinetum and Forest.

Our volunteers donate an amazing amount of time welcoming visitors, helping at events, supporting our learning and tree teams or helping to maintain the cycle trails. This enables us to get on with, among other things, the vital conservation work that is undertaken in the National Pinetum.

Bedgebury National Pinetum is proud to have been awarded a Level 4 Accreditation by The ArbNet Arboretum Accreditation Program, the highest accolade that a botanic garden can achieve.
