The Women’s Farm and Garden Association has announced a new scheme called WRAGS (Work and Retrain as a Gardener Scheme).

It is a part-time horticultural trainee scheme designed for those returning to work, changing career or taking early retirement, who want to work in horticulture.

WFGA’s placement gardens offer training in practical gardening skills with an experienced gardener.

Gardens are also wanted for trainees. Working gardens are a mixture of private and estate or open to the public offering a variety of opportunities where practical skills can be gained. The WRAG Scheme is a unique partnership between garden owners, trainees and the charity WFGA.
