Buckinghamshire Gardens Trust has undertaken a number of outreach projects over the years involving individual groups, specific projects for a community and a large number of schools who have gone on to develop gardens and an interest in their environment. If you have in idea for an outreach project please do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Schools Garden Project
The Bucks GT is seeking to revive the county’s primary schools garden projects so that the children can experience the enjoyment of eating fruit and vegetables they’ve grown themselves. We have recently been asked to advise on a school that has been given an allotment and a member has volunteered with this project.
Resources to get you started:
