Digging deep for green garden design in Sheffield

Have your say

Young gardeners from across the region who dig design have an amazing opportunity to bloom at Weston Park Museum in Sheffield.

Young disadvantaged people aged 16 to 24 have a chance to design a garden at the museum as part of a free course running throughout August. Participants will work with garden designers to design a space to the Museums brief.

During the six session course participants will learn which plants will work best in the space, research other gardens to help them decide what will work well and then have their designs realised. It is an opportunity to gain experience in horticulture, design, team work, growing and working alongside specialists.

If a person’s design is picked it will then be used to transform the space.

Dates in August 2016 are: Wednesday 10, Thursday 11, Friday 12, Wednesday 17, Thursday 18, Friday 19. All sessions will run from 10am to 2pm.

Places are limited – you can reserve a space on the course through EventBrite.
