Outreach Gardening

The Outreach Gardening Programme seeks to engage organisations throughout Northumberland with a vision to bring communities together to create and restore beautiful, practical garden spaces and natural environments for everybody to appreciate, relax in, learn in and enjoy.


Through our expert gardener, we pass on the knowledge and skills needed to plan, create, further develop and maintain garden spaces. Beneficiaries will learn about plants, wildlife, our environment and the values and importance of leading a healthy, active lifestyle through physical activity, healthy eating and understanding the benefits that they bring.

Throughout the year we are delivering a range of seasonable workshops that demonstrate and teach many gardening skills such as planting bulbs, trees and shrubs, planting beds, fertilising and winter preparation in order to help best prepare you for next Spring and the upcoming growing season.

As you will probably have now heard, we have entered Tier 4.

Unfortunately this means that The Alnwick Garden is now closed until further notice.

We always use January as our month for essential maintenance, so as soon as we know when we can re-open, we will let you know both here on our website and via our social media channels.

For anyone with tickets, please accept our sincere apologies. We will be working through all bookings and contacting you to organise a refund.

Here's to 2021... x
