We are seeking new members to help us achieve our objectives. Our members do not have to have a registered landscape or a historic walled garden – many of our members have no garden at all – we are simply passionate about protecting green spaces for future generations, or learning about great Devon gardens and about the people who shaped them and manage them now, or we just enjoy the events organised by the Trust.
Gardening, and the appreciation of landscape design, is a lifelong learning experience. As a member of the DGT you will find like-minded individuals, as well as plenty of experts willing to offer advice and assistance. Whilst we particularly wish to encourage student and professional gardeners, horticulturalists and arboriculturalists working in Devon to join the Trust, we welcome everyone with an interest in Devon’s fantastic designed landscapes.
