May Garden

The Trust organises a series of events throughout the year, including talks and visits to interesting and significant gardens. These occasions are designed to be both enjoyable and informative. They provide a good opportunity for members to meet new people and renew old acquaintances, usually over lunch or tea. But they also provide an opportunity to increase our awareness and understanding of Kent's garden heritage. Many of the gardens we visit are not normally open to the general public.

Past events have included a tour of Restoration House and its garden, with commentary by the owner, guided tours of Margate and Broadstairs, and a visit to the World Garden at Lullingstone.

Our annual lectures cover a wide range of subjects for example: ‘The Protection of Landscapes at Risk’, ‘Conservation and Management in the Twentieth Century’ and ‘Sissinghurst and the Arts and Crafts Garden’.
