Supporting gardens for good causes

From 2022 to 2024, Project Giving Back is funding a series of gardens to raise awareness of a range of amazing causes

Hands Off Mangrove by Grow2Know funded by Project Giving BackWith 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. Over the next three years, Project Giving Back (PGB) is making it possible for a diverse range of charities to have a presence at the show, giving them a boost in the wake of the global pandemic.

Set up as a unique grant-making organisation with this sole focus, PGB funded twelve gardens at RHS Chelsea 2022 and a total 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. 

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

As well as supporting eight Show Gardens in 2022, PGB funded all four gardens in the new All About Plants category. These smaller gardens were located within the Great Pavilion and are plant-led designs that champion specialist nurseries and new design talent.

The eight PGB funded Show Gardens are:

Hattie Ghaui, Director of PGB, said
: “It is clear that gardening and good causes are a natural fit. We are thrilled to have supported a fantastic array of gardens that combine incredible causes with the highest standards of design and planting. Our priority is helping them to tell their stories and make the most of this special opportunity.”
