Volunteer Training Manual
The manual offers a practical guide to aid volunteers at all levels of experience to research and record parks, gardens and other types of ornamental landscape, and contribute information and materials to the Parks & Gardens UK database.
Part One is an introduction to researching and recording parks, gardens and other designed landscapes. If you are new to this kind of work, we suggest that you begin here, to get an idea of what is involved.
Part Two offers in-depth advice on researching a garden’s history. This part is intended as a practical guide and reference resource for researchers in the field, and is divided into sections for easy reference to just the material you need at any stage of the process.
Part Three of the manual contains detailed contact and bibliographic information relating to the many organisations, publications and other resources referred to in Parts One and Two.
Part Four contains the detailed supplementary information that is referred to at various points throughout the manual.
