We have made it! We are amazed and delighted to have reached our target in just two months thanks to the wonderful support from all of you out there. The garden has been well and truly saved by our lovely visitors, friends, volunteers, local community and the wider gardening community far and wide – you really have shown us how much you care about this fabulous garden. A big thank you from all the staff, trustees and volunteers at Helmsley Walled Garden – come and see us soon – we will be open from the 1st August.
It costs £11,000 a month to keep the garden running with just two full and two part-time employees to support around 50 active garden volunteers. The garden is entirely maintained by volunteers, a number of whom suffer from disadvantage, ranging from social anxiety to learning difficulties – the garden is a valuable resource for all.
