Earn an AQA accreditation in Habitat Management and Community Engagement

The Natural Estatescourse is an ongoing programme that seeks to give 16-24 year olds valuable skills in creating and managing green spaces for the benefit of local wildlife. Activities include, but are not limited to, building bird and bat boxes, making raised flower beds, wildlife gardening and general grounds maintenance.

This is an excellent opportunity to learn transferable skills, as well as to gain an AQA Accreditation in Habitat Management and Community Engagementupon completion of 8-12 sessions. A working reference can also be provided to those participants who complete the course.

All sessions are ongoing with no specific start or end date and take place at our Training Garden in Priors Park, Tewksbury, from 14.00-16.30, with the possibilty of away days to work on one of the local wildlife reserves. Free to come along to a taster session and see if this course is right for you.

In recent weeks the activities have revolved around preparing for the Heart of Priors Park Family Day that is due to take place on 15th April, for which the Training Garden will be open to the public and selling plants that have been grown at all our sites across Gloucestershire. These include shasta daisies, purple toadflax and poppies that can be planted directly into the gorund, as well as dahlias, cosmos, antirrhinum and others that can be potted on.

Natural Estates is part of the Big Lottery Fund's "Our Bright Future"programme, which aims to empower young people to lead on progressive change in their communities and local environments.
