Community Gardens


Dobbies Community Gardens is our initiative that offers support to groups from across the UK to help transform,
restore or start an indoor or outdoor green space

All types of community and charity groups are welcome to apply

Thanks to those who entered

Our colleagues are passionate about gardens and plants, championing garden living all year round to create experiences that bring people and communities together

As part of Dobbies Community Gardens, we will donate plants, tools and gardening equipment to help bring your green space to life. In addition to this, there will be volunteer hours allocated 

The closing date for applications has now passed. Thanks to everyone who entered
