We aim to raise awareness of the importance of historic parks and gardens in Yorkshire and aid in the conservation and management of these unique assets.
The Trust offers a 'Membership for Schools' scheme to assist Yorkshire schools in developing garden areas or setting up/enhancing gardening.
The Yorkshire Gardens Trust runs an annual series of visits, tours and events for its members - find out more on our Events page.
Many gardens are endangered by inappropriate development or neglect - we aim to raise awareness and appreciation of garden heritage via research and recording.
