Events

Here you’ll find all the details for our upcoming Gardeners Collective events from open days and volunteering days to pop-ups and festivals across the UK. If you're looking to book onto our workshops, head to the shop where you'll be able to see the full calendar of events currently available to book!

As a Community Interest Company, we are able to access amazing grant funding which allows us to offer lots of fully funded or subsidised projects. Most of our materials and resources are provided by these funds and support everything we do. Profits from our paid sessions cover extra materials costs and are used to grow the project, supporting our community with everything we do.

Our workshops are designed for all to enjoy engagement with nature through gardening, check out each event details for project-specific information and who they are suitable for. We aim to have a project for everyone, so if you’re after something we don’t currently offer, please get in touch. We love hearing about what our community would love to get stuck into!
