2018 marks 50 years since the Gardening for Disabled Trust was established. Our charity was born in the flower power of the 60s and we’ve kept that spirit burning ever since – helping disabled people bring bloom and blossom to their gardens. And giving them the tools to defy their disability and give them back a sense of independence, or purpose, or well-being and all the great things which come from that special pleasure which is gardening.
We’re celebrating flower power by providing donors with Alan Titchmarsh’s Top 10 Gardening tips. All you have to do is donate upwards from £10. Your money can go a long way towards helping people living with disabilities and mental health difficulties. For example:
- £10 can buy a bag of compost or an adapted trowel*
- £50 can buy a raised planting table or bed*
- £100 can buy a ramp*
So if you want to find out how Alan keeps his gladioli groovy and his freesias far out, donate here. Let’s share the joy of gardening. And help others to do so too.
*These are typical examples of the kind of thing your donation would purchase
