Jigsaw GARDENworks

GARDENworks is a horticultural enterprise delivering a safe and accessible opportunity for a range of indoor and outdoor gardening opportunities. All the adults we support through this enterprise enjoy a range of horticultural activities in and around the Centre for Lifelong Learning, Jigsaw School, Café on the Park and the Dunsfold Park Estate Office as well as our off-site Jigsaw Life Skills Centre in Guildford.

Learners work under the guidance of our Horticultural Manager and are taught many practical and transferable skills such as how to use a watering can and hose, through to weeding, digging and planting seasonal flowers, shrubs and vegetables. They learn about working safely in the garden, the best clothing to wear  for gardening and how to identify, use, clean and store tools correctly.

Sessions also include learning about wildlife and natural lifecycles and how the things they grow and nuture enhances the environment around them.
