YGT for schools

We offer a scheme to assist Yorkshire schools in developing garden areas or setting up/enhancing gardening.


We research and record locally significant historic designed landscapes in Yorkshire that are not on Historic England’s Register.


We give advice on planning and other conservation issues relating to Yorkshire’s historic designed landscapes.
