Hollybush Conservation Centre

There is always something going on at Hollybush, whether its going out with one of our practical teams (Tuesday to Friday every week) to do some hands-on conservation work, supporting our students on the gardening course or helping around the gardens at Hollybush.

Come along, join us! You don’t need green fingers to volunteer and help improve local green spaces! Get your (old) woolly jumper on and join in!

Hollybush is a busy centre and most of our staff are out during the day delivering projects and supporting volunteers. If possible, please make general phone enquiries and referrals between 11am-2pm (Mon-Fri) and we will do out utmost to have a staff member available to help you (even in this time window the person on duty may be busy - if your call isn't answered, please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can).
