Our umbrella body ‘The Gardens Trust’, is hoping to start a project in our region (the East Midlands), called “Growing Our Gardens Legacy” (GOGLE).
Eight publicly accessible designed landscapes have been selected for a pilot scheme to engage volunteers to understand, research and record them.
Allestree Park in Derby is one of the historic parks/gardens landscapes selected.
A lottery bid was placed to provide funding for this project but unfortunately it was not successful this time around. Another bid will be placed to enable the project to continue.
Volunteers from the local community will be sought for training for this purpose, if the next bid is successful. If you would like to be involved or would like to receive further information about this, and other projects/events from the Gardens Trust (they may be in different regions of the UK), please contact Irene Bates on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be on our email list.
