Gardening and Growing

Horticultural trainees learn about organic gardening in our Community Garden, greenhouses and polytunnel. Activities include sowing seeds, planting out seedlings weeding, watering the plants and harvesting fruit and vegetables for sale.

By caring for the Farm's gardens, borders and green spaces, horticultural placements offer people the chance to participate within their community, meet new friends and gain new skills in a relaxing, therapeutic and supportive environment.
