The Friends of the Gardens

About the Friends

‘The Friends of Cressing Temple Gardens’ was set up in 2013 to support the gardens and Jubilee Orchard at Cressing Temple in central Essex. The Friends work with the garden’s head gardener providing financial and practical support for plants, materials and specific projects. Their contribution is welcomed by Essex County Council who manage the site.

The Friends became a registered charity in 2016 (No 116643).
