Over the centuries, they have often been a source of pride and pleasure to people seeking peace and tranquillity in a busy world ... The Trust organises a series of events throughout the year, including talks and visits to interesting and significant gardens. These occasions are designed to be both enjoyable and informative. They provide a good opportunity for members to meet new people and renew old acquaintances, usually over lunch or tea. But they also provide an opportunity to increase our awareness and understanding of Kent's garden heritage. Many of the gardens we visit are not normally open to the general public.'
