Open Gardens Collection ambassador announced

We are rather chuffed that head gardener, RHS author, BBC Radio Essex regular, podcaster and grow your own expert, Lucy Chamberlain has joined the charity as our Open Gardens Collection Ambassador.

She has also recently won the coveted Garden Media Guild award for Practical Journalist of the Year 2020, so she really knows her onions.

Lucy will not only be sharing her knowledge and posting videos for us on Twitter, she has very kindly offered to open her own mouth-watering kitchen garden for us in 2021.
