• The Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust

    Through the Trust grants are available to projects of significance to horticulture (or botany with a strong horticultural content) and education for horticulture. The type of activities that can be funded include:
    • Training schemes for gardeners run by appropriate organizations
    • The provision of educational programmes in gardens open to the public
    • Preparation of exhibits or exhibitions of horticultural interest; the restoration of historically interesting gardens which are or will be open to the public
    • The development of new gardens which will be open to the public; etc. (please note the list is not exhaustive).
    The Trust also provides support for several traineeships in horticulture each year (August to July); these are awarded to applying gardens (who each find a suitable trainee).
    The next deadline for applications is the 15th February 2014.
