Corporate Volunteering Days at Lindengate

Located in a 6 acre secret garden in Wendover, Lindengate’s Volunteering Days offer groups of up to 15 people the chance to learn new conservation or gardening skills, relax around our fire pit making bread or even get involved in tree planting and sowing wildflower seeds. Volunteering Days are a great way to motivate your employees and demonstrate your organisation’s commitment to creating positive change for people, their wellbeing and the environment.
