The heritage gardens and outdoor spaces are highly dependent on the dedication and passion of our garden volunteers! When the Good Shepherd Sisters owned the site, they had unlimited gardeners and when the Convent was a university campus, there were 11 full-time gardeners. Today, the gardens are maintained by only two part-time gardeners, thus the need for volunteers! Volunteers can join in on the regular Wednesday group or organise a different time (depending on the availability of our gardeners). Total knowledge of flora is not necessary. We also welcome corporate volunteer groups.
