The Trustees are seeking to expand the Board. We would like to invite applications from friends and supporters who wish to play an active role in supporting the strategic development of the project. Information on the gardens and the range of activities we offer in education, environment, tourism and events is available on Brigit’s Garden website. Brigit's Garden is run by a voluntary Board of Trustees which works closely with the Director. The Trustees and the Director recognise that additional expertise would strengthen the governance of Brigit's Garden and enable the development of the project.
We are looking for energetic people who would like to play a part in the governance and development of Brigit's Garden. We have identified a need for additional Trustees with expertise in one or more of the following areas:
• not-for-profit business development
• environment, ecology, practical sustainability
• education and training (particularly with the QQI framework for development, recognition and awarding of qualifications)
The Trustees take an active interest in the project and attend meetings every 6-8 weeks, virtually and/or in Brigit’s Garden. There is a contribution to travel expenses for meetings. Trustees are responsible for all aspects of the governance and management of Brigit’s Garden. They also act as the Directors for Brigit’s Garden Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG).
We invite you to email the Chair of the Board of Brigit’s Garden, Colin Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information and an application form
