Discover a real sense of community this year

In addition to our annual donations to nursing and health charities, the National Garden Scheme grants awards to help community gardening projects, many of which, in turn, open their gates to National Garden Scheme visitors.

From social welfare and gardening projects that help the isolated, the disabled and the disenfranchised to support for community orchards, food banks and social prescribing projects at GP surgeries the National Garden Scheme funding provides a much-needed boost to those working on community garden projects throughout England and Wales.

Visiting a community garden is a whole new experience – the produce and plants they grow and the health and wellbeing benefits they provide is hugely inspirational. If you have time why not visit a community garden opening for the National Garden Scheme this year – listed below. We’d love to know what you think!
