This is 'hands on' work with extensive practical experience outdoors both in the gardens and in the poly-tunnel. Emphasis is on learning the basic skills for working with plants. There are a mixture of Entry Level 3 and Level 1 units include introductions to the propagation of plants, garden horticulture, garden maintenance, sowing and growing techniques and the cultivating of compost and soils. Alongside the land based skills students will also be involved in enterprise activities with the preparation and selling of garden produce.
