The Himalayan Garden was donated to a Charitable Trust, The Hutts Foundation, by Peter and Caroline Roberts.
The purpose of this was to secure the future of the gardens and enable people, both young and old, to be able to enjoy this wonderful environment and to understand and be educated in the whole process of developing and maintaining a collection of rare plants.
The objectives of The Hutts Foundation are:
- The advancement of environmental protection by promoting the cultivation and conservation of rare and endangered species
- The advancement of education for the public in horticultural skills for plant and garden conservation
