Funds available: The Eric Gardener Memorial Fund

Vegetables and fruit_275_215The Eric Gardener Memorial Fund aims to improve British Horticulture mainly by promoting, encouraging and supporting education, research and experimental or development work.

In 1972 the horticultural industry subscribed to a fund in memory of Eric Gardener CBE who was for many years very involved with the National Farmer's Union, as Chairman of the Central Horticultural Committee and as a former Vice-President and Deputy President.

Th Fund has supported a wide range of projects. It has helped those attending conferences and studies both here and abroad.

It has given money for the promotion of horticulture as a career and even helped to encourage the consumption of fruit and vegetables.

Our last grant was to help a young person attend the International Plant Propagation Society Conference.

If anyone is interested in applying for funding for a suitable activity they should write to:

The Secretary of the Eric Gardener Memorial Fund,

National Farmer's Union,

Agriculture House,

Stoneleigh Park,


CV8 2LZ.
