Our Charity

We have a small office staff of four but a wide reach with over 150 Volunteers and a network of about 700 gardens. We annually open over 500 gardens each year which donate to over 250 charities and have raised over £1 million for charity in the last four years. We are extremely proud of our contribution to health and wellbeing through promoting gardening, garden visiting, and volunteering and we strive to ensure that our charity experience is rewarding, inspiring and enjoyable.
