Guernsey Conservation Volunteers

We are indebted to GCV for their consistent support in NTG land environment. GCV are a group of volunteers undertaking projects, which create, enhance, or protect sites of nature conservation importance in the Bailiwick of Guernsey. The group undertakes work on behalf of the National Trust, La Societé Guernesiaise and various States departments including Horticulture’s tree schemes.

GCV work in beautiful nature reserves around Guernsey every other Saturday morning throughout the year. No conservation experience is necessary and new members are always welcome to come along and join in.

The Guernsey Tapestry

National Trust of Guernsey are proud to be associated with The Guernsey Tapestry which is a significant and unique work of art illustrating 1000 years of local history in ten panels of embroidered canvas work.

The original aim of the project was to provide a lasting reminder of the Millennium celebrations, involve the whole community and encourage people to look more deeply in to the Island’s history. The panels were stitched by the residents of the Bailiwick with each one bearing the crest of the parish that stitched it. The story in each panel is brought to life by an audio guide which is available in English, French and German. The Gallery provides a permanent home for the Tapestry where it is preserved and displayed for the enjoyment of all.

No visitor to Guernsey should pass this by.

Victorian Walled Kitchen Garden & Guernsey Botanical Trust

The Guernsey Botanical Trust was formed in 2006 for the express purpose of restoring Saumarez Park’s Victorian walled garden as a charitable and voluntary project.

The garden had been part of the de Saumarez family’s private estate, which was acquired by the States of Guernsey following the death of the fourth Lord de Saumarez in 1937. While the park itself has been substantially used for public purposes, the walled garden fell into a state of disuse and disrepair over the years.

Volunteers can be found working in the garden on Saturday mornings and Wednesday afternoons. Visitors can also purchase produce in season from the garden on Saturday mornings from 10:00-12 noon, and have a chat with the gardeners.

La Société Guernesiaise

La Société Guernesiaise was founded in 1882 to encourage the study of the history, natural history, geography and geology of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, the conservation of the Bailiwick’s natural environment and the preservation of its historic buildings and monuments. In many respects, La Société Guernesiaise is similar to the UK Wildlife Trusts. However, its activities extend into many other areas, including history, archaeology and astronomy.
