Hi, my name’s Raul Crawford. I studied arboriculture and forestry at university, and have maintained a healthy interest in both subjects throughout my adult life. As an Isle of Wight resident, I’m keen to draw attention to the exceptional community work performed by the dedicated team at The Isle of Wight Gardens Trust. They’re an independent charity, run by volunteers, engaged in conserving, caring for, and learning about historic gardens and designed landscapes throughout the Island.
