Supporting people with learning
disabilities to lead fulfilled lives
Getting involved and being part of a team that transforms the site through each of the growing seasons, gives the trainees a positive experience as they engage in the associated processes and tasks from planting, watering and general care, through to the selling of the plants to the public.
They experience all the different aspects of a small business. Our approach reflects the successful model of practical training, we have used in our Spokes project.
Twigs was established in 2013 and
offers a different kind of opportunity.
Trainees will develop new skills based around
gardening and horticulture. Having refurbished the once redundant
greenhouses on Brinton Park, the trainees now have a
great environment in which they get fully involved.
Twigs has great scope in 2017 we have increased our
production and the range of plants available to purchase.
Visit the site and purchase the hanging baskets, bedding plants, and flowers for the summer and autumn. We also grow fruit and vegetables in our raised beds for the trainees to take home to cook, as part of our healthy lifestyle programme.
