Calling All Gardeners Who Want to Improve Their Literacy & Numeracy Skills!

Do you live in the Benarty or Lochgelly area of Fife and would like to try your hand at gardening?  A new course organised by BRAG Enterprise and Elmwood College could be for you!

The Harvest Time course plans to allow potential gardeners to get involved in designing a working garden, which will sell produce to local residents and improve their literacy & numeracy skills.

Participants on the course will be involved in all aspects of the developing the garden from design, to growing plants and selling the produce.  The potential benefits of this course include increased fitness levels, developing numeracy and literacy skills, making new friends and developing a healthier lifestyle.

The site for the garden has generously been donated by BRAG Enterprise Ltd, in Crosshill, who have combined with Elmwood College who will provide the horticultural & literacy expertise to get the project off the ground.

Tracey Muirhead, Learning Manager at BRAG said, “As an organisation we are committed to promoting a healthier lifestyle for our local residents as well as increasing their reading and writing abilities. We are delighted to be working in partnership with Elmwood College and are looking forward to the development of this project based in BRAG’s own garden.”

Funding for the project has come from the Scottish Government’s Challenge Fund.  To find out more about what the course can offer you contact Tracey or Marion at BRAG Enterprise Tel. 01592 860296.
