Our work

Arlington’s kitchen garden becomes a family veggie patch 

With most of the Trust’s staff furloughed, a small team remained to carry out essential tasks while Arlington Court was closed. Normally three gardeners and 20 volunteers tend to the beautiful Victorian garden. But with the gardening team down to just one member of staff, it became clear we'd need to be creative to keep on top of the gardening during lockdown.
