Social Farms & Gardens are delighted to announce that The Prince of Wales has chosen to extend his Patronage of the charity. The Prince of Wales has always taken a keen interest in our work to support communities to farm, garden and grow together, and over the summer he accepted an invitation to extend his Patronage for a further term.

His Royal Highness first became Patron of the charity in 2001. Nineteen years on, the charity supports a wide and ever growing network of exceptional groups and people working across the community growing and farming sector; delivering vital services to thousands of people and changing lives every day.

Chris Blythe, Social Farms & Gardens Director says

“We are honoured and delighted to have the continued backing of The Prince of Wales. Celebrating our 40th anniversary this year has been especially difficult in the current situation, many of our planned events have had to be postponed in order to focus on supporting our membership through this challenging time. The continued support of His Royal Highness comes at an important time where all of us in the sector are under great strain and striving to provide our upmost support to the people and groups that need our help the most.”

The Prince of Wales’s support for Social Farms & Gardens and the sector as a whole has enabled huge achievements over the years, his ongoing support will enable us to achieve even more.
