About Us

Historic Gardens Foundation

Above: The gardens at Majorelle in Marrakech (HGR 44.)

The Historic Gardens Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation set up in 1995. We now have a wide network of subscribers linking garden enthusiasts, visitors, owners, professional gardeners, landscape architects, historians, planners and botanists in forty countries.

Through our magazine, newsletter and website we have been able to share news, views, alerts and ideas with like-minded people determined to protect our global garden heritage. We can also lobby those responsible for putting a park or garden at risk.

The Foundation receives no public funding and so is completely independent. It is based in London but works worldwide.

Supporters can receive help for their own campaigns by tapping into our interactive global network.

In 2022 we decided to move the focus of supporting historic parks, gardens and designed landscapes away from a printed magazine supported by e-newsletters and Issue 44 of the magazine was our last printed publication. Instead we awill be supporting the efforts of others in the sector by means of grants. We shall be looking to encourage applications from organisations (not confined to not-for-profit entities) who are working on an international basis to promote and maintain our common heritage.
