Training is being offered by Garden Organic for volunteers who want to help people to grow their own. Called the Master Gardener scheme, the training will consist of a two-day foundation course at Garden Organic's headquarters at Ryton (near Rugby) on either 23/24 April or 5/6 June, plus a further day or half-day in July or August. The training is funded by the Lottery and Warwickshire County Council and will be free to participants. After training, volunteers will be expected to put in 30 hours work with 10 households or growers, plus wider engagement with at least 50 people through running stalls, talking to community groups etc. Garden Organic are very excited about our Garden Share scheme and are keen to work with us, so we have a great opportunity to get in an early bid for places on the pilot training course.
Please let me know if you would be interested in taking part in the Master Gardener scheme.
