Volunteer position for a gardener

Volunteer gardener

Do you have green thumbs, would you like to make a valuable contribution to the preHistorisch Dorp and are you available at least one morning and/or afternoon every week? The preHistorisch Dorp has special vacancies for volunteers who would like to work together with others in the open air. 

The preHistorisch Dorp is the most child-friendly museum in the Dutch province of North Brabant. An open-air museum where all visitors, young and old, are actively discovering what everyday life used to be like in the past. We keep our gardens in tiptop shape and safe for visitors throughout the season. A large part of this work is performed by a regular group of volunteers.

As a volunteer gardener you will be part of our technical service. You will work together with other passionate volunteers who maintain our open-air museum's indoor and outdoor spaces. You will take on a variety of tasks, from trimming and mowing up to garden maintenance, to contribute to the preHistorisch Dorp's ambience. You consult with the team leader of the technical service to determine your activities.

Unfortunately, the preHistorisch Dorp cannot provide supervision for people with a health indicator, such as autism. We will only come to agreements with a referring authority for the supervision of a volunteer in exceptional circumstances and only after consultation. In such cases, the supervision will be arranged by the referring authority.
