Following the participative survey to the HEREIN network on garden policy launched in 2015, a first meeting of interested countries agreed on the need to build a network of administrations responsible for garden policies in Europe.

This has led to create the "HEREIN in garden" network whose objectives are:

1. Contributing to the building of a voluntary countries network;
2. Promoting the exchange of information and know-how;
3. Promoting international and national activities on gardens;
4. Raising awareness of different audiences.

To achieve it, it aims in particular to provide information on:

  • At international level: actors; legislation
  • At national level: authorities responsible and other actors; national legislation; avalaible documentation; awareness actions; protection measures; existing training.
