Join us live or online at the Royal Geographical Society on Tuesday 16th November at 7pm for our annual lecture, ‘My Garden Saved My Life’: Robin Hanbury-Tenison in conversation with Rachel de Thame. Two extraordinary survivors discuss the critical role that gardens played in their recovery: Robin from Covid-19 and Rachel from breast cancer.
The garden at Stonor Park near Henley-on-Thames played host to a very special celebration on Wednesday, 18th August when it opened its gates for a garden visit and afternoon tea for unpaid carers and frontline hospice and hospital workers. The event celebrated 25 years of support and over £21 million in funding from the National Garden Scheme for three of its key beneficiaries: Marie Curie, Hospice UK and Carers Trust.
More than 1,200 people have been cared for at a state-of-the-art palliative care unit largely funded by Macmillan Cancer Support and the National Garden Scheme since it opened its doors two years ago. The milestone marks two years since the eight-bed Y Bwthyn NGS Macmillan Specialist Palliative Care Unit opened its doors at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital.
We are delighted to launch our programme of 2021 special events. These are a small number of gardens where the open day events are for small groups only and offer something extra such a talk by the head gardener, special refreshments or privileged access. Book your tickets now!
