Become a garden apprentice

Every Monday in August, grab your badge, pick up your trowel and become a Beningbrough garden apprentice.

  • Booking not needed

Work alongside our garden experts and let little hands learn new skills and techniques in seed sowing, garden maintenance and composting. Sessions will run for an hour at 11am, 1pm and 3pm; sign up on the day - limited numbers, arrive early to avoid disappointment. The garden apprentice days are kindly supported by the Yorkshire Gardens Trust.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
