How it works

 Our membership site provides a place for gardeners to connect with each other and share their gardens.  Please note that we are not a garden maintenance service but rather a way for both people to benefit from a private mutual agreement. 

How it works

So, how does it work in more detail? 

Membership is free for a garden owner to list their garden, enabling you to list your garden on our map.

Volunteer gardeners who we call aspiring growers can then connect with you via the website to arrange the garden share.

We ask that you commit to a full growing season at a minimum.

We can support you directly if needed in creating a mutually beneficial arrangement document to establish a written agreement that establishes healthy boundaries and shared expectations for what can be accomplished.

Please reach out to us, if you feel you need help at

What are the advantages?

Sharing your garden with a volunteer will allow you to:

  • Make a positive contribution to your community.
  • Boost your health and well-being by increasing your enjoyment of your garden.

Is your garden suitable?

Having easy access to the garden, adequate sunlight, some room to grow fruits and vegetables, and access to water are essential, but the most important thing is a willingness to collaborate and work positively with your aspiring grower.

Do you have a garden that you would like to share? if so let’s work together to help those in need and bring joy to the community through gardening!

Growing together

Together we can grow, learn and share in the harvest.

"We share ideas, tips, seeds, cuttings and apples - and the grass and hedge cutting, as well as our shared moans and delights with the weather and our horticulture failures and successes"

Some Ideas on how you could share your garden?

Gardening together

Imagine having a garden that is a shared space between you and a new friend. A place where you can come together, work the soil, plant seeds, and watch your efforts grow side by side. As the seasons change, so too does the garden. You'll learn new things together, try out different techniques, and experiment with new plants. The shared garden becomes a special place that is more than just a collection of plants. It's a symbol of your friendship and the memories you create together. When you're there, surrounded by the beauty of nature and the joy of being in each other's company, everything else fades away.

Or Just Sharing your Space

Do you have a beautiful garden but not enough time to enjoy it. Or maybe you love your garden but are getting older and can't keep up with the work anymore.

What if there was a way to share your garden with someone who will love your garden just as much as you do? By sharing your garden, you're not only allowing someone else to enjoy it, but you're also creating an opportunity for a like-minded individual to care for it alongside you. Imagine having someone to discuss gardening tips and tricks with, share a cup of tea or coffee, and enjoy the fruits of your labor together. You'll get to see your garden through fresh eyes and experience it in a new way. It's a chance to pass on your knowledge to someone who will appreciate it, and to be a part of creating a community of gardeners who share a common passion.

In either scenario, a shared garden is a beautiful thing

Sharing your garden can also be a way to give back to your community. By providing a space for someone to garden, you’re contributing to a culture of sustainability and self-sufficiency. You’ll be helping someone save money on groceries, reduce their carbon footprint, and improve their overall health and wellbeing. 

In either scenario, a shared garden is a beautiful thing. Whether it’s between friends or with someone who just loves to garden, the benefits are numerous. It’s a chance to learn, grow, connect, and give back. So why not consider sharing your garden today?
