Education & Communities

The Trust is keen to encourage local community groups and primary schools.

We offer small grants to local community groups aiming to raise awareness of the rich garden and park heritage in our area by helping these groups. These grants help with the buying of plants and equipment; it enables individuals to get fully involved in community projects.
