Friends of the Storey Gardens (FOSG) maintain the garden borders in The Storey Gardens and a small garden area behind The Storey on Castle Park. We look after the fruit trees, manage the wild flower areas and the paths in The Tasting Garden. Lancaster City Council are responsible for cutting the grass and undertaking any tree surgery work.
The gardening work is carried out under the guidance of our Gardening Coordinator. FOSG gardening volunteers come and work in the gardens whenever they have spare time, Mondays to Fridays during the official garden opening times. Currently we are not holding specific work sessions but arrange to meet and work with any new volunteers.
We have a range of hand tools. Many of these are ordinary garden and woodland tools but still need treating with care.
Volunteers of all abilities are welcome and we aim to find tasks which are appropriate to you.
If you are interested in coming along to the gardens to meet us and find out more please complete our contact form and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible.
