- promote education about the countryside for young people from towns and cities and those who are disadvantaged;
- provide facilities for those who are disabled, who have learning difficulties or who are in some way disadvantaged to visit and participate in learning experiences about the countryside; and/or
- support the advancement of education in agriculture, horticulture and conservation for disadvantaged people, particularly the young.
The Trust no longer consider applications for staff costs, sensory gardens or community allotments, or funding requests from state-funded schools or other institutions. Projects which are based on horticultural activities must be able to demonstrate that they provide training which leads to a recognised, accredited qualification for the participants.
