Mileham Open Gardens 2022

Every few years the Upper Nar Gardeners group organises an Open Gardens event in Mileham village. This raises a substantial sum of money for charity and brings members of our community together.

The last time Mileham opened its gardens was in July 2017 and, after a five year pause and the restrictions of lockdowns, it would be great to run the event again.

Please consider whether you would be willing to open your garden in aid of charity. Your garden doesn't have to be worthy of an RHS gold medal! It doesn't matter whether it is small or large, a work in progress, or a mature haven. All will be interesting, and what's important is that we have enough gardens open within the village to make it worthwhile people visiting.

More information will be found on the 2022 Open Gardens page and on the Community discussion site as we make progress with organisation.

Virtual Open Gardens 2020

We had hoped to host an Open Gardens event in 2020, but the Covid-19 pandemic stopped us. Instead we created a Virtual Open Gardens website, which is still available to view.
