Originally set up in 1927 to support district nurses, the National Garden Scheme now raises millions of pounds for nursing and health charities each year. We also support charities doing amazing work in gardens and health, grant bursaries to help community gardening projects and support gardeners at the start of their career.
In 2019, we donated £3 million, and over 80p in every £1 raised at the open gardens goes straight to our beneficiaries. You can read about the charities we support below.
You can also find out more about our bursaries and apprenticeships and how to make an application.
