We are excited to share with you something special we have been working on.

 

Our Supported Internship students have teamed up with North Lincolnshire Council to complete a new project in Central Park, located in Scunthorpe. The idea of the project is to provide dedicated spaces to represent the community. Over the last few weeks our Supported Internship students have been busy creating garden bed designs.

 

The designs created by the students have consisted of:

  • The Edge Garden by Mathew Williams;
  • The Rainbow Garden to represent LGBTQ+ in the community, by Jade Miles;
  • The Gnome Village by Thomas Whiledon;
  • The Poppy Garden to represent the Royal British Legion by Alex Dent.

A big thank you to Charlie Farquher for focusing on the measurements of the garden bed for peers to work from.

 

We were delighted to welcome two representatives from the North Lincolnshire Council to listen to the student’s pitches, Dragon’s Den style. We were warmed with their responses and feedback as they decided to incorporate elements of each landscape for the final project.

 

It has been a pleasure to work closely with North Lincolnshire Council to support their initiative of biodiversity in the local community through landscapes. Our students have worked extremely hard on their designs, for which will now the largest garden bed in Central Park. This opportunity has provided our students with the opportunity to develop horticultural and employability skills which supports our objectives of the programme. I look forward to seeing the garden during my daily drive into work.” Marc Device, Supported Internship Tutor.

 

It is brilliant to be able to provide our adults with special educational needs the opportunity to develop skills that will provide promising prospects for their future.
