Outreach Gardening

The Alnwick Garden Outreach Gardening Programme seeks to engage with organisations throughout Northumberland in order to bring communities together to create and restore beautiful and practical garden spaces and natural environments for organisations and communities to enjoy.

Through the work, we pass on the knowledge and skills needed to further develop and maintain spaces, to teach about plants, wildlife, our environment and the values and importance of leading a healthy, active lifestyle through good exercise, healthy eating and understanding the benefits that they bring.

Thank you, Alex!
