New Leaf is expanding its reach, and we are always looking for more groups to join our network of growing spaces. We work with schools, businesses, community groups, residents associations and youth clubs, providing opportunities for people to interact with and learn about nature. We deliver one-off sessions, to create raised beds for example, and also provide rolling services, maintaining and training groups in the spaces we have helped them transform.
We will tailor a package to suit your needs. We already provide formal accreditation through AQA’s Unit Award Scheme, and can deliver Edexcel’s BTEC in Horticulture, or RHS modules in horticultural theory and practice. We have the experience to make links with the National Curriculum at all Key Stages. At Key Stages 4 and 5 for example, we can provide practical activities which will enrich learning in Biology, Geography, Food Technology, Resistant Materials, Modern Foreign Languages and more. We can host Duke of Edinburgh participants doing their Volunteering or Skills strands. We have experience of working with participants who display special needs across the physical and behavioural spectra, and believe that environmental education is one of the best ways to engage people who do not thrive in traditional classrooms.
