RHS — IT'S YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD
RHS It's Your Neighbourhood (IYN) is a scheme for volunteer-led community gardening groups which are focused on cleaning up and greening up their local area. It provides groups with the chance to get involved in the wider RHS Britain in Bloom initiative. There is no charge to participate. Contact CRiB if you are interested.
