Florence Court Kitchen Garden restoration appeal

In the late 18th century, the Kitchen Garden provided the estate and surrounding area with vegetables, herbs and even tropical fruits from the glasshouses. We're currently working to restore the garden back to its 1930s arrangement and need your help.
