Volunteering is a great way to support EFDSS and get closer to all things folk. If you are interested in volunteering for us please see below for volunteer opportunities. At Cecil Sharp House we are always on the lookout for more volunteer stewards to help support our concerts, dances and family activities. It’s a fun way to get involved and have a great experience in one of London’s greatest venues. Our garden is maintained and planted by Permaculture and we welcome volunteers all year round to keep it looking beautiful. Volunteers are a valuable part of our staff team. If you are enthusiastic about the folk arts, have good verbal communication skills and enjoy being in a creative environment where your contributions can really make a difference then please do get in touch to register your interest.

Cecil Sharp House Permaculture Garden is a decorative, ecological, edible and low maintenance garden which has been inspired by the old folk adage: one for the birds, one for the bugs and one for me which chimes well with the permaculture ethos of earth care, people care, fair shares.
It is based on working with the soil-food-web, wildlife and plants as co-gardeners to maintain health and fertility. In keeping with our folk and permaculture ethos we showcase apple trees (central to the English folk tradition), and a majority of edible (mainly perennial) plants.
We are in the process of becoming a permaculture LAND Project maintained by Permablitz London.
