Open your garden to support Cornish wildlife!
The Cornwall Wildlife Trust aims to open around 12 gardens, mainly privately owned, between April and September each year to raise funds to continue the Trust’s work in managing wildlife reserves, conservation projects and educational events.
We are always looking for new gardens to add to our register and are currently sourcing gardens to open for 2019. Our approach is to make the event as easy as possible for the garden owners, so all stewarding, signage, car parking, catering and organising is managed by Trust volunteers. Our only requirement of the Owners (apart from the garden looking presentable on the day!) is sufficient nearby space to park about 50 cars, and access to basic kitchen facilities where teas and refreshments can be prepared. The event takes place on Sundays usually between 2.00 and 5.00pm.
If you think your garden might be suitable for opening and would be interested in helping we would love to hear from you. Email: stephen.howe (at) cornwallwildlifetrust.org.uk
