Walled Gardens Appeal

Visitors in the Kitchen Garden at Beningbrough Hall, North Yorkshire

Walled gardens are living, breathing places with stories to tell. They’re a direct link to the history, landscape, and lives of local people. Sadly, many have fallen into disrepair - but together we can bring them back to life.

Help us restore these forgotten gardens

Of the 140 walled gardens we care for, 30 have been lovingly restored, but the rest need saving. Your help today would make a derelict walled garden part of its community once more, and provide for future generations.

Special places with community at their heart

Many walled gardens were used to grow fruit and vegetables and employ people in the local community. With your support we can revitalise and restore these spaces and help reconnect people to locally grown food.
Across the country people are coming together to breathe new life into their local walled gardens. Schoolchildren are tending plots and learning about the growing seasons. Volunteers are cultivating organic food for local good causes and families are discovering special places where they can enjoy local produce. Could you be part of it, too, and help transform a forgotten garden into a vibrant space for all?
