In addition to the Heritage Lottery Fund, who have generously provided the majority of the funding for the HBGTP, there are two other organisations which have helped us to provide training places. These are:
Stanley Smith (UK) Horticultural Trust
Provides funds in support of horticultural education; for the advancement of research in any branch of horticulture and the publication of the results of such research; to assist the creation, development, preservation and maintenance of gardens accessible to the public; the promotion of the cultivation and wide distribution of plants which have value to mankind; promotion and cultivation of new plants; assisting the publication of books or other works relating to science or horticulture.
The Barbara and Philip Denny Trust has been set up to support authors, illustrators, historians, poets and any other associated creative or artistic workers by awarding grants, loans and financial support.
