Volunteering opportunity with Wildflower Guardians

The Wildflower Guardians project and the Wildflower Conservation Society are looking for volunteers familiar with some of the wild flowers which grow on chalk grassland, willing & able to travel to Stanmer Park, Waterhall and often free on Thursdays and keen to help restore chalk grassland across the city.

The project is looking to build on the impressive work of the Wildflower Conservation Society, by establishing a new group of volunteers – the Wildflower Guardians - who can participate in some or all of the following activities:

  • Collecting local wildflower seed from specified sites around Brighton and Hove

  • Helping to process and propagate the seed at Stanmer Park

  • Planting-out at various locations across the city

  • Using a scythe to produce green hay

  • Assisting with the annual cycle of management of B banks (bee/butterfly banks) across the city

  • Help to restore flower-rich grassland by cutting and burning encroaching, low-biodiversity scrub over the winter months

Training will be provided and we anticipate this group will initially meet approximately twice a month on a Thursday.

If this sounds like your kind of thing, please register your interest with a brief email to It would be helpful if you could briefly summarise any relevant experience you already have.
