Opening All the Gates Project
Opening All the Gates is a partnership project between The National Trust, The Historic Houses Association, The Royal Horticultural Society and The Association of Gardens Trusts. Opening All the Gates is a legacy of the Gateway Gardens Trust, originally the work and inspiration of Bettina Harden. The Opening All the Gates Project has been supported by English Heritage.
Historic gardens are an essential part of Britain’s heritage. Evidence shows that they play a vital part in the wellbeing of the nation, contributing to people’s physical and mental health, happiness and quality of life. They are inspiring places for learning, provide spaces for people to come together, enjoy relaxing environments and take important time out.
Opening all the Gates seminars took place between October 2010 and January 2011, for those interested in widening access to historic gardens. They explored what gardens can bring to communities and how involving people supports the gardens themselves. See the participating venues below.
Results, findings and more useful information arising from the seminars collated by Project Manager Adam Clarke may now be accessed. Contact Adam Clarke for further information or contacts and to offer your ideas for the future development of the OAG project
