Course description

The final leg of your gardening journey has arrived, and what a celebration it is! Come along and continue your journey into the wonderful world of gardening at the safe and welcoming Parkstone Connect Centre. Develop your skills needed to keep a garden looking alive and beautiful. You will have the opportunity to see the fruits of all your hard work in the previous courses and improve team working skills. You will continue to build and strengthen your knowledge and understanding of how nature and plants live and thrive. By creating a safe shared space for your centre you will bring happiness to you and your friends. As the different plants and flowers bloom, you will bring a sense of belonging and wellness that can be carried out into your daily lives. You do not need any special equipment except enthusiasm and a smile, because who doesn't like being out in the garden? Make sure you are wearing old clothes as you can get dirty. Once this course has completed you can move on to other courses hosted by your tutor and gain more awareness of your community. Do not forget to give your suggestions of the next course to your tutor.
