About the Friends

The Friends of Cressing Temple Gardens were set up in 2013 to support the  gardens and Jubilee Orchard, at Cressing Temple in central Essex.  The Friends work with the garden’s horticulturalist providing financial and practical support for plants, materials and specific projects.  Their contribution is welcomed by Essex County Council Country Parks who manage the site.


The Friends of Cressing Temple Gardens became a registered charity in April 2016 (registered charity No. 1166431).



Volunteers are always welcome to help in the gardens and with the running of the Friends Group. As a volunteer you can become involved with gardening, DIY, plant propagation, plant sales, organising fundraising events and marketing.

To find out more about volunteering, send us an email.

To join the Friends fill in our membership form.
