SERC hosts a horticulture webinar for potential gardeners

- Advertisment -

There can be no doubt how much green space and gardens have been valued this past year with an estimated three million more gardeners created during the 2020 lockdowns.

It seems our appetite for gardening is set to continue and SERC is keen to welcome potential green fingered students to a special horticulture webinar to showcase what is on offer at the college at 3pm on Wednesday, May 26.

Claire Dunwoody, Horticulture Lecturer at SERC, said: “We have been offering horticulture courses at the college for a number of years and have developed a comprehensive programme for the beginner through to more experienced gardeners.

“The learning never stops in gardening whether you garden for the sheer pleasure, want to grow your own vegetables, design your garden to suit your lifestyle or want to develop your skills and knowledge for a career in the horticulture sector, there really is something for everyone at SERC.”

She added: “The webinar will be hosted by our horticulture lecturing team and they will answer any questions and take participants through our programmes from the RHS L2 Certificate in Horticulture to OCN L2 Awards in Garden Design, Organic Fruit & Vegetable Growing, and Floral Design, also offered at Level 3.

“In addition we offer OCN programmes in Autumn/Winter Gardening & Spring/Summer Gardening and a range of leisure courses, including Gardening, Organic Fruit & Vegetable Growing and Floral Art.

“We will also introduce our new Online Leisure Gardener, which as the name suggests is delivered 100 per cent online.”

Claire concluded: “The wonderful thing about gardening is that everyone can get involved, whether you live in an apartment and have a window box or a few containers, an average family garden or something larger and more mature, or access to a local allotment, getting outside and growing gives great satisfaction.

“The garden is an extension both to home and leisure has encouraged more people to get out an make the most of the space.”
