Most of the work in the Garden is done by volunteers and new ones are most welcome. In the Garden itself you do not need any specialist knowledge, just an enjoyment of gardening and a willingness to learn. You can come along for as long or as short a time as suits you and there are plenty of jobs for those who are not as physically fit as some of the others.
There are also other volunteering jobs which do not involve gardening, for example helping at events, maintenance etc.
There are always some Volunteers in the Garden every Thursday between 10 am and 4 pm, although some work on other days. If you are interested just come along for a chat or a taster and see if you enjoy it.

Cowbridge Physic Garden has been managed by its own charitable Trust since 2005. The Trust’s Governing Committee consists of people from all walks of life and they make decisions on new projects and control the day to day running of the Garden.

Here is a short video from the Vale of Glamorgan Heritage Experience explaining and showing the work that went in from volunteers to create the garden as it is today.
