About this hub
We like to think of Plough Corner as a one-stop-shop for your food and gardening needs with our café and garden centre together on one site. We provide training opportunities for working age adults with a learning disability, supporting them to gain work skills in catering, hospitality and horticulture.
Catering training at Plough Corner covers all aspects of hospitality and includes learning about food preparation, cooking, baking, cleaning and serving food and drinks to customers. We also focus on customer service skills as well as till training and clearing tables.
Horticulture training covers a variety of aspects including plant care, growing, watering and pruning as well as training in landscaping, general maintenance tasks for the garden centre and serving members of the public.
The skills our customers learn on site are described as ‘incredibly valuable’ when they go on to seek paid employment. Many of our customers have been successful in securing positions thanks to the skills they’ve learned through Work Based Training.
