JOB OPPORTUNITY - Part time horticultural trainer with Blooming Gardeners
04 February 2021
Fiona Grant of Blooming Gardeners writes
"We are a horticultural group offering hands on experience and training for folks with learning disabilities. We were based at Isobel Rhind Centre but during Covid lockdown have been working in Green Wellie, Barbaraville and Dingwall. Hopefully we'll get back to our own project area soon."
Blooming Gardeners is a Community Interest Company, registered with Companies House. It is run by a board of volunteer directors. The primary aim of Blooming Gardeners is to maintain and improve the health and well-being of its clients (gardeners) through involvement in horticulture. At present a service is provided for people with a range of learning disabilities and social communication disorders. In the longer term it is hoped to expand the therapeutic gardening
programme to include other disadvantaged groups.
Blooming Gardeners employs a part time Horticultural Trainer who guides the gardeners in plant production, garden maintenance, soft landscaping and fruit and vegetable growing. We would now like to recruit another part time Horticultural Trainer.
