Work Experience for Young Gardeners
Horticulture project for 16-24 year olds
People aged between 16 - 24 years old are invited to get involved with a unique gardening project called 'Growing Space' taking place on Friday afternoons at the Young Adults’ Centre, Southall.
In return for their work, the volunteers will have real work experience to add to their CVs and also have the opportunity to gain a formal horticultural qualification. The project has just started and those interested can drop in between 1pm and 3pm on Friday afternoons all through the summer to find out more about what is involved and to join in.
Councillor Binda Rai, cabinet member for children and young people, said: “This new project is a great way for local young people to try their hand at horticulture. With their help, we want to transform the space behind the Young Adults’ Centre into a thriving garden and allotment for the people who use the centre to enjoy.
“In return, we will help volunteers to take their first steps into a career in horticulture with a formal qualification on offer as well as the chance to learn practical work and life skills to boost confidence and self-belief.”
