Every ticket you buy will go towards helping a new generation of gardeners get hands-on horticultural training.

For the last 25 years the WFGA have helped career changers and anyone wanting to start a career in horticulture, get the professional training they need.  The WRAGs Scheme (Work and Retrain as a Gardener Scheme) is unique.  No other organisation provides training like it.

Each trainee is paid the national living wage by the garden owner and gardens for 14 hours a week for a year under the instruction of a garden owner or head gardener.

As our ambassador Christine Walkden says: ‘This is a scheme that encourages one of the greatest gifts in gardening, that of sharing skills, knowledge and experience with others.’

We receive no grants or funding and rely on donations, administration fees charged to trainees, and fund-raising activities to keep going. Your ticket purchase will help us find new gardens that will kickstart the careers of would-be horticulturalists.

By supporting our raffle you will help us build a flourishing future for Britain’s green spaces, safe in the hands of knowledgeable gardeners, and ensure another successful 25 years of WRAGs.

Tickets cost £1 each, its simple to enter just click on the Play now button below.

Please buy as many raffle tickets as you can and spread the word to your friends and family. You will help us provide essential practical training for gardeners and be in with a real chance of winning an amazing prize.

The closing date is Friday 31st August 2018 and the draw will take place on Monday 7th September 2018.

Thank you for support and good luck in the draw.
