Furzey Gardens is where we celebrated our Wedding on 17/6/2011.
I have enjoyed working at furzey gardens love the people and customers and this year is special
My green fingers come from a long succession of gardeners in the Edser family. The one I pay most credit to is my dad, Robin, who turned 90 last year.
We have enjoyed several wonderful summer evening plays at Furzey Gardens in recent years.
The most special year for Christos Lazari Foundation was 2017, the year of its inception, in honour of the late Christos Lazari.
We marked the tenth anniversary of the loss of our dear son by making a donation to Furzey Gardens in George’s memory.
In 1994, when I was seventeen, I decided I wanted to see my long-lost brother who has learning disabilities. This experience transformed my view of the care industry.
During the COVID pandemic Furzey Gardens was a place of solace for many people with learning disabilities. As the garden celebrates its centenary, Sean, Liam, Jason and Matt tell us about their own special year memories.
My mother was always interested and proud of my work and, as her sister had a learning disability, it feels good to honour the memory of my family through the Special Years’ Appeal.
I arrived at Minstead Lodge early in 1977 to join the community that Tim Selwood had established there.
We first started the training project for people with learning disabilities in a field adjoining Furzey Gardens in 1986 and it grew from there.
