How We Can Help Support Closed Nurseries, Gardens and Gardeners

By Ozhene @papaver

Never has the word 'unprecedented' been used so much as it is at the moment. We are living in the strangest and darkest times for decades. Public places including gardens are closed, no gatherings of more than two people are allowed and non-essential businesses are closed. We have to do this, we know that we must keep safe from Covid-19 but we also know that millions of people from every part of life have lost their livelihood overnight. I thought I would gather a few things together that will give support to struggling gardeners and horticultural based businesses and also help us who are social distancing and self-isolating feel a bit less distant and isolated.

How we can help support closed nurseries, gardens and gardeners

The charity been supporting horticultural workers for 180 years. As I write this their freephone helpline is working as usual and they are provide free and confidential support to anyone who has worked in or is working in the horticultural industry in the UK. They also provide help to their spouses, partners and dependent children. More information can be found here.

Take care and stay safe.
