Accredited Training Course
Level 2 training opportunity.
Join us in the Spring of 2023 for a Level 2 accredited work-placed horticulture course. 10 weeks from early March to July, this agroecological farming course will be held on consecutive Saturdays and offer a very practical training opportunity. Each week will involve classroom seasons looking at the theory and detail of organic growing followed by practical activities that acts both as training and evaluation for the qualification process.
There are very few accredited training opportunities in agroecological farming available in the UK, and none that offer practical 'on the farm' training above an NVQ Level 2. As a result, we are working to develop a curriculum for NVQ Level 3 & 4 based on organic horticultural practices and business management skills that can better prepare new agroecological growers for running a successful farming business. Watch this space!
