School Gardening Training Courses

Please choose your region on the left hand menu to see courses in your area.


Our exciting new 2014 - 2015 programme has been updated to focus on the topics we feel will be of most interest and relevance to schools, based on past performance and extensive feedback from attendees and presenters last year.

We have introduced some brand new courses including “Science and Horticulture in the 21st Century.” We are also trialling two new courses in London called “Urban Schools – Get more from your Growing Space” and “Growing to Sell – Design and Run your own Enterprise Project” with a view to rolling these out across the regions in the future.

To book any of our courses please fill in our booking form, which can be found under “Resources” on the right hand side of all training pages.
