You do not have to be an expert on garden or landscape history to get involved in the Parks & Gardens UK project (although experts are welcome!

To help with the project, you could:

If you are not already a member of a Gardens Trust or similar organisation, we would like to put you in touch with your nearest group, where you will find help and support from other garden researchers. But you are welcome to register with us individually if you prefer.

If you need training on how to carry out research and recording of historic parks and gardens, we can help with that too. For those who are totally new to the subject, we provide an Overview of Research and Recording Practice online.

Forms and information

The Research Recording Form and Volunteer Training Manual are available on the Resources page.

Other useful tools can also be found on this page such as the Illustrated Glossary and the Thesaurus which provide definitions and accompanying images for terms and concepts associated with historic designed landscapes.
