Fulham Palace Trust
Since 704 Fulham Palace has been the historic house and garden of the Bishop of London. Our vision is to engage people and provide an insight, through the stories of the Bishops of London, into over 1300 years of English history, and to become one of Great Britain's most loved and inspiring historic houses and gardens.

Market barrow volunteers will work on the barrow outside, selling Fulham Palace’s organically grown plants and produce to the visiting public in the beautiful walled garden. The role includes harvesting, preparing, displaying, selling and taking payment for our home grown vegetables, fruit, cut flowers and preserves.

What’s in it for you?

• help run and sell quality organically grown produce and plants to the local community on the market barrow;

• to learn about organic practices and have an understanding of plant and vegetable production

• to support and help optimise this important part of Fulham Palace Trust’s income

• to have the opportunity to engage and interact with our local visitors and fellow volunteers
