Website Running Costs

This site isn't about making money - it's about building an on-line Open Gardens community resource that will be invaluable both to Open Gardens organisers and also visitors. It has been conceived, designed and is run by two Open Garden enthusiasts who organised their village's Open Gardens event and also opened their own garden.

For garden owners and organisers, this site is all about getting your event publicised and successful. For visitors, it's about access to information - which open garden events are taking place, where they take place, times, and dates.

A cunning plan

If we can bring together event organisers, garden owners and garden visitors, then we'll have succeeded. Of course, we also have to be realistic about the costs of keeping a complex site like this going, but we have a cunning plan - we'll try to fund the site by asking for small donations.

Crowd Funding

If everyone who uses this website pays just a little, we'll have enough to keep the site going, then everyone benefits - event organisers and visitors alike. It's called Crowd Funding - the open gardens community funds the website.

if this idea doesn't work, then we'll look at alternatives. Whatever we do, we'll aim to consult this site's Open Gardens community and reach a consensus.
