Volunteering

"I really enjoyed picking today - I met some lovely people and had a giggle so thank you!  I would love to
help again when you next need unsilled labour - if you will have me!!!" Amanda, Ampthill
 
The vineyard is lovingly cared for all year round by local people giving their time to the project. It's a great "green gym", and unique way to enjoy the outdoors, meet new people, and relax from the stresses of life.

Volunteer sessions at the vineyard are generally held on Tuesdays and Fridays, between 9.30 and 4pm, depending on the seasonal task to be done. We hope to expand this to include some weekend sessions over the summer.  If you have any time to spare and would like to come and try your hand, we would love to see you at one of our sessions.  Any time you could volunteer would be great, from a couple of hours to the whole day. 

If you want to get involved, please contact the organiser, Jane Markham on 07981 113714 or info@wardenvineyard.org.uk for more details.
