With the challenge of climate change and alarming loss of biodiversity, William Robinson’s ethos offers a way to restore and enhance our natural landscapes.

Given a chance, nature will flourish – wildlife, landscapes and forests can be restored. At the William Robinson Gravetye Charity we are working hard to put this into practice.

With your help, we can convert a derelict 4-acre field into an accessible community orchard and learning space for school children and groups with additional needs, incorporating a wild meadow and raised beds. We will use William Robinson’s The English Flower Garden (1883) as a blueprint for our garden whilst boosting biodiversity and creating new habitats for wildlife.

By providing hands on educational experiences, we can connect people of all ages with nature and share William Robinson’s ideas for a sustainable future.
