Volunteer at Nutcote
Volunteers help with the house museum, shop and cafe, help with tasks behind the scenes and maintain the beautiful gardens
May Gibbs’ Nutcote couldn’t continue to operate without its hard-working volunteers. Volunteers help with the house museum, shop and cafe, help with tasks behind the scenes and maintain the beautiful gardens.
People volunteer at Nutcote because of an interest in May Gibbs and her life and works, a wish to help preserve an important part of Australia’s rich cultural heritage, their desire to do something worthwhile in the community, or from a desire to enrich their own lives.
