About us

GIA was formed in March 2020 at the start of the first U.K. lockdown.  Back in March 2020, we gained over 200 social members in the first 24 hours of launching GIA, and now have over 700! 

We offer practical support to community gardens, we run friendly and inclusive gardening workshops in community spaces, we operate a successful horticultural work experience programme to help people into employment and we match volunteers with community groups.
