Financial Accountability

It is important to us to share what we’re doing with the money that we’re raising – to account publicly for how we use the money you donate to us, and what we spend it on. We started this in October 2020. The format may evolve over time, but for now we are posting monthly updates below. The outgoings are all things that are either garden-related or things that help us run ‘skills from the hills’, our monthly patreon practical skills courses, which you can subscribe to from £1/month.
