We work with other organizations in the county like Devon Historic Buildings Trust, Exeter Civic Society and Devon History Society. We worked with the Devon Historic Buildings Trust to restore a pavilion at RHS Rosemoor and helped the Exeter Historic Buildings Trust with a new garden at 21 The Mint. We also work with local authorities, for example with Torbay Borough Council on the recreation of the Lutyen's garden at the Drum Inn, Cockington and the Rock Walk in Torbay. The Trust was instrumental in the establishment of the Exeter Dissenters' Graveyard Trust and has supported the restoration of the 18th century dissenters' graveyard located on Magdalen Street in Exeter. Examples of grants in recent years include the following (click on the links for further details):
