Want to gain experience and kick-start your career in gardening?

For 19 years, Walworth Garden has been successfully running QCF accredited, City & Guilds, Level 2 courses in Work Based Horticulture.
We are an accredited City & Guilds training centre, currently with a 100% pass rate. 

We aim to build students confidence, motivation and self esteem, as well as providing them with the necessary skills to enter the labour market.
Many of our students go on into full-time employment, some making a very successful career in horticulture and others going on to train at a higher level elsewhere.
At the Garden we have different types of free* flexible training on offer, all run by our Senior Horticulture Tutor and Botanist Peter Martin.

Throughout your training you will cover:

Gardening skills & information for beginners; with equipment provided
