We are delighted that most of our students have now returned to the Garden and their work placements.
Jean Gavin, our Employability Manager, has done a tremendous job, and has had great success in finding placements for many of our students. You can see what a lot she has achieved in our Routes to Work update page.
Our thanks are due to the volunteers who manned our successful plant stall in Gartmore in aid of the Garden Open Day, and to everyone who purchased plants. We also had a stall during the Open Gardens Scheme at which we sold plants, which raised a considerable sum through sales and donations.
The sheep, pigs and poultry have done well, and are all in good condition, in spite of all the difficulties.
What we do
Green Routes Stirling is a registered Scottish charity, based in Gartmore, near Aberfoyle, Stirling.
We offer young people with support needs an opportunity to learn and grow, to develop skills for life, learning and work. We have a wealth of experience and a track record of success.
Here is a video of some of our volunteers earlier this year, taken by David Thomas, one of our tutors…
Green Routes offers hands-on training in horticulture and an alternative to classroom-based education for young people with additional support needs.
