Hebridean Gardeners, a new partnership between Cothrom Ltd and Lews Castle College UHI has reaped rewards with 11 students achieving an SVQ in Horticulture at Level 1.

This training was part of the Climate Challenge funded Local Food for Local People project which encourages the growing of more local produce on the island of Uist. This was certainly achieved by the 11 students taking part, through their hard work cultivating their own gardens and allotments, “Falachan Cothrom” the community garden in Daliburgh and Tagsa Uibhist Horticultural Project.

The next cohort of students will be joining next week to study the SVQ in Horticulture at Level 2.
