This is an active, busy and creative department. Students carry out seasonal work by clearing from the previous year and planning and preparing for the next season.

Students get involved in planting and growing crops whether it is flowers or vegetables, planting up patio pots and hanging baskets. Students help to prepare the outside ground for vegetables or flowers, learn how to handle plants and prepare the soil, sow seeds, plant plugs, use fertilizer, label plants and keep the department clean and tidy.

Students also have opportunity to develop their own small allotments here at the John Graham Centre and take whatever they produce home with them.
