We are very excited to be offering learner plots for the first time this year. The learner plots have been devised as a way to give beginner gardeners the opportunity to manage their own plot of land whilst also contributing to the life of the garden as a whole.
We have allocated five plots, each measuring approximately 6m2, for use by the trainees. They are situated in a sheltered, sunny position within the community garden.
We are looking for trainees who are interested in planning and managing each space throughout the 2014 growing season. Each trainee will have the opportunity to design their bed according to their own interests.
The learner plots will be available to individuals, or community groups (such as church groups or youth clubs) and schools who are interested in managing one of the learner plots as a group. In return for the use of the space, we will ask you to attend a training day in March, and to engage with the life of the community garden, including attending open days and helping with the watering rota.
For more details, please download the guidelines from the Files page, speak to any of the session leaders at the garden, or email Charlotte at firstname.lastname@example.org
