We are excited to present to you our Open Gardens Charity Event to be held on the weekend of 25th to 27th June 2021
We will have lots of local gardens for you to visit and enjoy. Perhaps you would consider opening your garden?
This is a new event for Maidenhead and surrounding villages organised by Maidenhead Rotary Club but the idea is not new. Every year across the country, gardens large and small are opened for charity.
Through Maidenhead Open Gardens, we want to encourage lots of local gardens to open on the same weekend in June 2021 so you will not be alone! You could also get together with a few green-fingered neighbours to open your garden as a cluster and support each other?
Many gardens may offer refreshments and plants for sale. We need volunteers to help. It’s a perfect way to share your passion for gardening and raise money for charity.
As a keen gardener, you will already understand how interesting it can be to visit other gardens, so we are confident other people will want to visit your garden too.
We want you to enjoy sharing your garden with your community, to meet other keen gardeners and to have fun whilst helping us to raise funds for dementia research and other Rotary charities.
We are looking for gardens large and small, traditional and modern, established or still a work in progress, and are also keen to hear from owners of any other type of interesting garden, co-ordinators of school gardens and allotment holders.
We are excited about this new local community event at a time when so many people are finding that spending time outdoors and in gardens is so good for their well-being.
We hope you will want to be part of our initiative! Please do contact us for any more information you may need, or for answers to any questions.
If you would like to show off your garden or help us in any way please send us an email:
Kind regards and happy gardening,
