This SVQ is offered in partnership with UHI Lews Castle College.
Have you always wanted to create a garden but just weren’t sure how to start? Then this is the perfect course for you.
You will learn how to sow, grow, harvest, cook and preserve your produce. Learn what grows well on the islands and how to achieve the best results in your garden; equip yourself with new skills in pruning, propagating and producing colourful flower borders; improve the overall look of your garden or allotment and learn how to use a range of equipment.
The flexible programme delivered from Ormiclate, South Uist will lead you through the process from seed packet to plate, enjoy the harvest of your own vegetables and much more.
This free course is accredited through SQA and is ideal for complete beginners or those who are already working or volunteering in this field. The 9-12 month course will enable you to gain an SVQ in Horticulture at Level 1 or 2 whilst working in your own garden and the facilities at the Ormiclate Campus and St Peters walled garden, Falachan Cothrom, in Daliburgh.
