Have you considered making a donation or leaving a legacy?

  • The PGT is an independent charity which is wholly reliant on gifts and donations from individuals and organisations who wish to be identified with the work we do to support education within the gardening profession.
  • Donations of any size whether on an annual basis or a single gift will help us to continue our work well into the future.  Larger gifts may, if the benefactor wishes, be named in an appropriate way.
  • Donations given by private individuals will be worth more to us as gift aid.
  • Leaving a legacy to the PG Trust will help us to train the next generation of professional gardeners.
