Mission, Vision & Values

In the spirit of ‘one Garden, one Place’ the Board of Trustees is wholly committed to working together with everyone to embrace our Mission, Purpose and our Behavioural Values.

Our Mission – a simple statement reinforcing our charitable aim.

Our Purpose says a little about how we seek to inspire people to take an interest in what we do, using the three themes of People, Plants and Place and helping everyone to understand the value of plants in their lives.

The Behavioural Values are a guide to how we conduct ourselves at every level of the charity, internally and externally.
