The Diggers Foundation
Australia's Gardening Charity
The Diggers Club began in 1978 as a commercial business established to provide gardeners with all their gardening needs. But the vision of being able to secure the future of heirloom seeds and to preserve the best of gardening traditions and plants in Australia was always at the heart of everything founders Penny and Clive Blazey AM set out to achieve.
After more than 40 years as a successful commercial business, our founders and their three children, Jolyon, Tessa and Matilda gifted The Diggers Club along with their privately-owned properties Heronswood, The Garden of St Erth, and the Diggers Preservation Garden to The Diggers Foundation. With the wonderful garden of Cloudehill now added to the roster of important gardens protected for the future, we look ahead to growing our philanthropic vision to encourage and inspire gardeners to create beautiful and productive gardens for a sustainable future.
Today, all profits from The Diggers Club are contributed to the efforts of The Diggers Foundation, a registered not-for-profit charity.
