GROWING PLANTS TO create opportunities

Our  traineeship programme will not only look towards developing horticultural skills, but also entrepreneurial and resourcefulness skills. 

We want to explore how we can support you in a range of ways by providing you with a safe space, the tools and materials, and our knowledge and experience, to explore your potential, experiment with your ideas and help you work towards the future you want and harnessing the opportunities all around you.

Our traineeships are about you, and your growth. Your time with us will be spent seeing the how we're working toward creating our vision of a better food system through growing high quality produce, marketing it into the catering world and building a community that is engaged and excited about new food. 

But for you, your idea of 'better' may be anything from knowing how to grow plants, to making your own products from them, to mindfulness and empowerment through time spent in nature, or perhaps you have your own plant-based entrepreneurial ideas and you want a space to experiment in. Either way, our traineeships are about allowing you to explore the power of plants and yourself.
