As a business, we have always believed in the importance of supporting charity. We have great pleasure in working with charities that have a particular focus on horticulture. The charities we support work tirelessly to improve the lives of others through horticulture. Below are details of our current projects and collaborations.
Keith Brown (pictured, right) has spent many years fundraising and campaigning to transform the community land close to his home in Billingshurst.
With plants donated from Architectural Plants and other local businesses, Keith and his team have transformed a bland grassy area into an entirely accessible, colourful and fun garden for the community to enjoy. It features a sensory garden, play areas for children of all ages and picnic and BBQ areas.
We dontate plants to Keith and his team and it's a real joy to watch the garden maturing. Do take a visit next time you're in the area.
Our Managing Director, Guy Watts, has a passion for promoting horticulture as a career option to young people, and speaks regularly at local schools and colleges.
Most recently, he spent the afternoon participating in a 'Careers Speed Dating Challenge' at The Weald Community School and Sixth Form College. He also gives regular talks at his alma mater, Collyer's College in Horsham, supporting their newly launched employability course.
