If you are able to sell programmes for us, please get in touch.


All proceeds from programme sales go to Freedom from Torture and Chorlton Refugee Aid.

Proceeds from plant sales, art and craft sales, and from refreshments also go to our beneficiaries, except where a gardener is raising funds for their own charity; this will be clearly indicated in their gardens.


We’d like to offer huge thanks to the gardeners who open their spaces to the public.

We are entirely run by volunteers, and keep our admin costs as low as possible. Thanks to all the musicians, tea-makers and other volunteers who help each year.

We often receive discounts from printers and designers; our web designer Des Gregory from greenh.co.uk hosts us for free and has donated hours of work to upgrade our website.
