Here are a few things you need to know before you get started…
This course has been divided into 2 sections. Section A deals with the specifics of volunteering including working with people and managing a team, while Section B will delve into the theory and practice of vegetable gardening.
The course consists of 8 videos, a downloadable Training Manual and a downloadable copy of the Reel Easy Guide to Growing. The Training Manual aligns with Section A of the course and will provide you with additional information on working with people. The Reel Easy Guide to Growing aligns with Section B and contains information on gardening theory and practice.
You will need to consult all of these materials in order to learn everything you need to know to pass the final test and complete the course.
Each section has been coloured coded across the Training Manual and the Lectures, for easy navigation.
Attached to this section you will find the Training Manual and the Reel Easy Guide to Growing. Download both of these documents and familiarise yourself with them before you start watching the videos. This will help you follow the content in the videos and workbooks simultaneously.
