Gardening Team

Join our gardening volunteers to help grow vegetables in our cottage gardens and bring our gardens to life with herbs and period plants.

Our gardening volunteers are responsible for  general grounds maintenance and gardening across our famous site. They are vital members of our volunteer base for undertaking important tasks to keep our site well looked after.

Our gardeners are keen and can help the Museum in different ways, not only by maintaining the site; they can grow vegetables in our cottage gardens that may be used as ingredients in our bakery demonstrations, and our period accurate planting schemes bring our gardens to life, showing a representation of what agricultural life was like in Black Country history.
