Regular group events/activities
Our gardening sessions generally take place on the following days and times, but we will update you once you’ve registered interest as a volunteer. There are also occasional weekend and evening sessions in summer months.
Mondays – 9.30-10.30 (or 10.30-11.30) – Friends Garden
Tuesdays – 9.30-11.30 (Sensory Garden) – stops November to February
Thursdays – 10am-12pm (various areas) – all year
Friday – 9.30-10.30 (or 10.30-11.30) – Rose memorial Garden/pergola
There are opportunities to focus on the orchard, wildlife area and new Tansy beetle habitats we are developing too.
Not ‘volunteering’ as such, but we have a craft group who meet, craft and natter and also at times create projects and displays for the park. From Jan 2022- Easter the project is linked to wildlife and the aim is a display in the park. They meet Tuesdays 1.30-3pm in the cafe in the park. We can put you in touch with the group lead – drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or pop along and say ‘hi’!
Workplace Volunteer days
We do welcome work volunteer days in Rowntree Park. If your company is registered with YorkCares, we ask you to go through them and can specifically ask to help in Rowntree Park. If your workplace is not with them, get in touch and we will aim to sort something out.
