Customers put their gardening skills to the test
Contract gardening work by Greenacre customers.
This week we visited Greenacre Garden Centre and Cafe, a work based training site for people with learning disabilities offering bite-sized training in food preparation, hospitality and horticulture. The team were contacted by a private customer to come in and transform their garden, which needed a bit of TLC.
Val who leads the team said; “All the skills the customers have been trained at Greenacre in Great Baddow, are being put into practice and utilised in private contract gardens within the local area. The furthest we have travelled is as far as Tiptree. The team work so well together and I am so proud of them all.
We provide a much needed service within the local area and our clients enjoy having the team come in and showcase what they can do. I have noticed that their confidence levels have increased and for them they have achieved their individual goals.”
If you would like the Greenacre team to improve the look of your garden, why not give them a call on 01245 477280. Charges are based on 1 member of staff with 4 customers at £15 per hour or 2 staff and 8 customers at £30 per hour.
