As a volunteer at Ashburnham Place you will get all meals while volunteering, all tools needed to carrying out tasks, receive a discount in the Orangery Tea Room and to ACT events, be part of our international community and enjoy year-round access to our 220 acres of grounds and gardens.

We are looking for the following type of person:

  • Experience of outdoor work
  • Passionate about nature and the environment
  • Willing to work with and learn about perma-culture principles
  • A committed individual
