2 hours per week for 5 weeks!
Groups of learners can plan and design their outdoor areas/allotments from scratch. They will be supported to plan the resources required, ensure accurate measurements are taken and using IT will create detailed plans.
Designs can be anything that the group agree, e.g. sensory garden area, seating area, raised bedding, straw bale planting, ponds or allotments.
The learners will then take part in the construction of the design, they will gain knowledge in construction skills and be fully supported by the tutor to be as involved as they can. Individuals will then learn how to maintain the area.
By the end of the programme, learners will have created a useful outdoor space to their own requirements which meets their own needs and will hold the required knowledge and skills to upkeep it.
