Discover wildlife-friendly gardening and support Cornwall Wildlife Trust at locations across Cornwall
Open Gardens showcases wildlife-friendly gardens across Cornwall to our green-fingered supporters. Discover something new at each garden, with owners taking new and innovative approaches to wildlife gardening. You can also enjoy our volunteer-baked cakes and take a piece of gardening inspiration home with you from our plant stall. Open from April- September 2022, our gardens are a great way to connect with nature and raise vital funds for Cornwall Wildlife Trust.
Thank you to all our garden owners, volunteers and to you for making the 2021 season so special. We're delighted to announce this year we raised a sensational £17,800 and over the past 10 years, an astounding £113,000! This would not have been possible without all your support, so thank you.
