Register an event for 2018

In 2018 you’ll be able to share your love of gardening by organising an event and registering in on our website. Whether it’s just you, your family, organisation, or your whole community that wants to get involved with National Gardening Week, 30 April - 6 May.

Registration is now open 

Here are a few ideas to get you thinking for 2018:

  • Get a few people together to transform or clean-up an unused or neglected space in your area (with permission)

  • If you have a garden or outdoor space, hold a garden party and invite your friends and neighbours

  • Hold a fundraising event to raise money for a local community garden or project. Hold a cake sale, a sponsored weeding marathon or a bring and buy sale

  • Organise some family activities in your local park. Get children to make a paper pot and plant a sunflower seed inside. Run a mask making or face painting session with butterflies, flowers, bugs and beasties as themes. Make flower and leaf collages, herb teas or rhubarb jam

  • Give out recipe cards, activity sheets or gardening factsheets from our Garden Ideas section.
