Project Giving Back

From 2022 to 2026, Project Giving Back is funding a series of gardens to raise awareness of a range of amazing causes

St James’s Piccadilly: Imagine the World to be Different at RHS Chelsea 2024With nearly 170,000 visitors and an audience of millions across TV and the media, RHS Chelsea Flower Show is an unparalleled global platform for good causes to raise awareness and funds. Project Giving Back (PGB) is making it possible for a diverse range of charities to have a presence at the show.

Set up as a unique grant-making organisation with this sole focus, PGB funded 12 gardens at RHS Chelsea 2022, and 15 in 2023 with the goal of up to 42 gardens over three years. It was founded by two private individuals who are passionate about giving good causes a significant springboard to reach more people and more potential donations to continue their important work for people, plants and the planet, and to draw attention to the work of charitable organisations, community interest groups, and educational programmes in the UK.

Two more years of PGB

In September 2023 it was announced PGB would be extending  support of gardens at RHS Chelsea for another two years, covering the 2025 and 2026 shows.

Hattie Ghaui, Project Giving Back’s CEO, said: “I am thrilled to confirm we will be supporting even more gardens for good causes at RHS Chelsea Flower Show until 2026. As we move into our third year of funding, it feels like PGB is still in its adolescent years and we wanted to give it time to mature into adulthood. We know from having to turn down some incredibly strong funding applications over the past couple of years that there are so many wonderful stories waiting to be told. We’re all excited to see how the creativity of charities, designers and wider garden teams continues to unfold and look forward to welcoming more partnerships into the PGB family.”

Relocation and sustainability

All PGB supported gardens are relocated after the show so they live on and continue to make a positive difference to communities and charities in the longer term.
