Walworth Garden is a charity dedicated to knowledge and nurture. Our mission is to improve lives by providing excellent learning and horticultural therapy through a garden that is open to all. We pride ourselves in putting nature first in all we do.

Walworth Garden is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee. The Charity is governed by a voluntary Board of Trustees. Our main charitable work includes horticultural training and horticultural therapy for those in need. 

We also provide services that individuals or other organisations pay for in order to generate surplus income to support our charitable work.

The Role

Now is an exciting time to join Walworth Garden as we expand on opportunities to extend our reach and grow bigger than we ever have before! The Plant Centre is often the first thing people notice about Walworth Garden when they walk past our site, and we take great pride in the vast offerings of organic plants available for sale to the public. 

This brand new role will oversee all aspects of the Plant Centre, providing business support and insight to maximise revenue as well as horticulture knowledge and expertise to care for our plants whilst adhering to the Garden’s ethos. The Plant Centre Manager will be responsible for all elements of our Plant Centre, including managing a team of Supervisors and volunteers to help the Centre function at its best seven days a week and in all seasons.

We particularly welcome applications from those identifying with groups currently under-represented within horticulture.
