The latest from Luton Hoo Estate and the walled garden

Our Volunteer Project Returns to the Garden

We are happy to celebrate the return to the Walled Garden of our Volunteer Project Members.  Volunteers are able to work in the garden and service buildings while adhering to Covid19 regulations regarding their personal safety.  Work continues in the garden in preparation for our 20 years anniversary next year and of course the seasons move forward meaning there is plenty to do across the garden.  We look forward to being able to welcome the Research Team, Oral History, Tour Guides and all office based volunteers back.  We are not there yet.  But we will be!

Return to the Volunteer Project at the Walled Garden

 

Today we are very happy to be able to welcome a small contingent of volunteers to the Walled Garden as we begin our slow return to the Walled Garden Volunteer Project. The Covid19 crisis has meant that our plans for the garden’s continued care and development have been drastically interrupted. Volunteering has been on hold and the garden (as much as possible) has been managed on essential watering and maintenance work only. However, like the Walled Garden, our volunteers are incredibly resilient, and they have waiting patiently (and made industrious use of their time away) until the time is right to begin the return.
We are also continuing to look at different ways and opportunities to open the garden to the public. We are not there yet, but watch this space!
Welcome back to the volunteers of the Walled Garden Project starting today -
You are most welcome!
