Description

Based in Errol, Perthshire, we are looking for gardeners to work in the gardens of Megginch Castle Estate. The estate is used by several charity and community groups, including ourselves and we would like to repay the kindness and generosity shown to us by helping recruit volunteers to help maintain and enhance the historic grounds which are home to a national collection of heritage apples and pears, walled, rose and physic gardens and giant redwoods. It is a serene and tranquil environment that recharges the soul, a gardener’s paradise!

Please contact us at admin@pkdofe.com or call 01738 627455 / 07951 557979 for more information.

Organisation aims and objectives

The Association was set up to advance the mental, physical and spiritual welfare of young people between the ages of 14 and 25 by promoting the scheme of Awards known as The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. In recent years, whilst maintaining the core function of the Association we have focused our activities on provision of support and experiential learning for targeted groups of young people with Additional Support Needs (ASN).
