Donate Online to Scotland's Gardens Scheme

From urban allotments to country castles and from big, mature gardens to small cottage gardens, we have wonderful gardens open for charity, all around Scotland.

Our Scheme is a simple one. We support garden owners to open their gardens, raising valuable funds for charity through ticket price, teas and plant sales.

Supported by a small staff team, we are nearly 98% volunteer-led with over 175 core volunteers, as well as our many generous garden openers, nearing 500 gardens each year. The money raised through our openings support about 250 different charities every year.

We combine the twin values of gardening and volunteering, bringing wellbeing benefits both through connection with the natural environment, and by bringing people together working towards a shared cause and being part of a wonderful community of like-minded volunteers.

Scotland’s Gardens Scheme is a charity in its own right and supporting our organisation, will help us to continue and improve our volunteer support and develop our garden opening programme for all to enjoy.
