Friends of Homeyards


Friends of Homeyards Botanical Gardens in Shaldon is a group, now a registered charity (CIO Reg No: 1159641), originally established in 1989 to promote the proper maintenance and advancement of The Gardens . We are always looking for keen volunteers to help in our efforts to raise the condition and profile of the Gardens and help out with voluntary work days and educational and community events including serving of teas etc. from the castle as well as raising funds.

If you think you can help or would like to join us please complete and return the membership form . Gardening Days are on Tuesdays starting at 10am at the gardeners hut

We are always delighted to see members at these events so please join us for as little or as long as you feel able and we can match jobs to each volunteers’ level of experience and skill. Current work involves ongoing clearance of large and outgrown plants and new planting of specific areas . The current main aim is to introduce lasting colour and interest.
