Five A Day Market Garden runs a variety of one off workshops, courses and projects throughout the year. We run activities for:
- adults with learning disabilities
- retired people
- older people with memory problems and their carers
The subject areas range from organic growing to conservation to environmental crafts. For more information on our courses, workshops and events- click here.
Some of our projects and courses are funded by organisations such as the Berkshire Community Foundation or West Berkshire Council and focus on the more disadvantaged groups in society. These courses are usually free of charge to participants.
“Such a great session; well planned with a good range of resources. An excellent way to spend a Saturday morning!” Feedback from a learner attending a wildlife session on ‘Garden birds and mammals’.
“Brilliant – do more!” One satisfied customer having attended our festive wreath workshop where participants harvest, weave and decorate their own unique festive wreaths, amply fortified by mulled wine and mince pies!
“I liked the course, it is very me. I love gardening and have loved it since I was a young boy. I think this course has great teachers because they are friendly and full of knowledge. They tell me information I did not know about gardening. I love planting seeds and young broad beans and growing my own runner bean. I love to watch them grow. I also love growing my own salad box. I’m looking forward to eating it.” Feedback from one learner on our Green Gardening courses for adults with learning disabilities.
Thank you for giving two of our service users the opportunity of a place on a course at Five A Day. I know they both enjoyed the course very much and I looked forward to hearing from them what they have learnt each week, and what they were growing!’
