15 people from the western suburbs graduated just before Christmas at the Brompton Community Garden live training site as part of Renewal SA’s Works Program. For six weeks, participants learnt hands-on how to build a pergola, put in paving, install rainwater tanks and construct a new garden with irrigation.
This live training site provided participants with a Certificate II in Horticulture. On completion of the program, several graduates gained further employment or training.
Bowden’s Project Director was blown away by the level of quality achieved by the participants.
The Brompton Community Garden live training site program was delivered in partnership with Renewal SA, Brompton Community Garden, Maxima and Skills For All.
A Bowden Brompton Community Shed live training site program was also previously delivered where participants learnt to construct a community shed, concreting, trenching and paving. 15 participants received a Certificate II in Construction, of whom a number secured employment or training.
This program is a partnership between Renewal SA, the Bowden Brompton Community Centre, Carey Training and Skills For All.
