Public engagement volunteering opportunity – RHS Malvern Spring Show 9-12 May
Are you a keen gardener or passionate about wildlife friendly gardening? Do you work in an area of research that is relevant to horticulture?
If so, there’s a great opportunity to engage visitors at the RHS Malvern Spring Festival from 9-12 May https://www.rhs.org.uk/shows-events/malvern-spring-festival. The show welcomes around 20,000 visitors and is featured on BBC’s Gardener’s World.
The festival organisers and the curator of the “Eco Green and Growing” area are looking for ecologists who would like to chat with visitors about all aspects of gardening. You can volunteer for just one or two days, as well as for the whole show, and there are opportunities to run workshops or give talks if you’re really keen.
All volunteers will get free entry and plenty of time to explore the rest of the show. We also hope to make a contribution to travel and subsistence.
Please get in touch with Emma (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions or would like to express interest in volunteering.
