Plant the seeds to success with the Ludgate Education Easter camp!
If your kids have a green thumb and love to work outdoors, the Ludgate Education Easter camp could be the perfect choice for you.

The camp will be a split format and delivered online.
An introduction to the days session will take place in the morning and a feedback session in the afternoon.
What does a job in Horticulture entail?
Horticulture is the science of plants. In a practical sense, this means working outdoors with trees and flowers. It can include landscaping and decoration. It is perfect for practical kids with an artistic flair.
For the more scientific, horticulture can extend in the agricultural landscape too. Working with growers to maximise food production is another possible outcome for qualified horticulturalists.
A beautiful community can result in a higher quality of life for those that live in the area, so working in this field can make a big difference to where you live and work too.
What will I learn?
The Easter camp will introduce participants with all the knowledge of design for a range of different settings.
It will include:
- Identification of plants
- Uses of plants and why we grow what we grow
- Work Practices
- How to grow plants, and the best methods to do so.
- The science of growing
- This includes learning to use common tools and techniques to maximise growing
Modern ideas within horticulture, such as environmentalism and sustainability will also play a strong role in learning.
