Growing Activities Leader

Through our new European-funded project we are offering supported placements to come and learn a range of practical food-related skills here on the farm; from plant-to-plate! We will also help you to develop job-hunting skills. No fees, no previous experience necessary, full training will be given. Support with childcare and travel may be possible so please speak to us!

Who Can Take Part & When?

This work experience suits people who seek to work in retail, catering, farming, horticulture, gardening or conservation and may also help those interested in grounds maintenance. Applicants must be over 18 years old, unemployed or economically inactive and living in our priority Penwith areas. The training takes place on Tuesdays & Thursdays for 13 weeks with follow-on support for 3-6 months afterwards. This project is operating during lockdown. Contact us for the next course start date.
