Leave a gift in your Will

Leave a gift that will help people grow

As a small charity, a legacy left to us makes a great impact. Every gift is very special to us. Every gift will be used wisely, effectively, and with respect.

“The care here runs deeper than what is visible. It is more meaningful, more impactful than can be measured.” – Judith, mother of Earthworker James

Our vision is to be there for future Earthworkers, to offer a variety of purposeful work and nature-based crafts in our beautiful gardens, and to unconditionally include, nurture, and empower.

“I feel safe here. I don’t get bullied here. It’s like a utopia here. When you’re here, everyone gets on with each other. If more people had work like this, it would be better for people.” – Earthworker

We support people with learning disabilities to care for our beautiful eco-gardens, and the gardens, in turn, care for them. We are unique in St Albans district.

What can a gift in your Will do?

You gift will unconditionally include, nurture, and empower. It will help people to grow.

  • Your gift could build a native wildlife habitat
  • Your gift could buy a uniform for an Earthworker to keep them warm and safe, or adapted tools to help people of all abilities care for their plants.
  • Your gift could empower Earthworkers to go into the community in our adapted van in order to care for the gardens of older people free of charge.
  • Your gift could pay for the upkeep of our beautiful eco-building, The Warren, the beating heart of Earthworks, where we eat, craft, sit by the fire, celebrate and talk together.

Or your gift could help our volunteers to care for our seasonal produce, and grow together with Earthworkers.

“Volunteering always gives both ways. Earthworks helped me to start living again.” – Mandy, Earthworks volunteer

If you are interested in your gift being used for something special and important to you, we may be able to help with this.
