Green Angels Fort Burgoyne

Green Angels is an exciting training opportunity with an environmental focus, giving you the chance to learn new skills, change your future prospects and make a difference in your community.

Our FREE courses cover subjects such as wildlife conservation, landscaping, environmental education, horticulture and more. Training programmes usually last around six weeks, with regular sessions that combine learning with hands-on experience.


We started Green Angels at Fort Burgoyne in 2019 with courses in Environmental Education and Habitat Creation and Management, and since then have continued delivery, even through the pandemic, when we ran online courses in Food Growing and Wild Wellbeing.  We love working at Fort Burgoyne – it is such an exciting space!  Courses planned for 2024 include the following:

  • Introduction to local botany – May/June 2024 – one day course
  • Introduction to Bee Keeping – June/July 2024 – six sessions
  • Habitat Management – October 2024 – three sessions
  • Introduction to Scything – September 2024 – one day course


In order to confirm you place on a course, you will also need to have completed both our application and welfare forms. Please note that to ensure all needs are catered for, all applicants will also be required to complete and submit a welfare form before being accepted onto a course.

We will contact you to discuss specific details of activities during the application process, and this informal chat also provides you with the opportunity to ask any questions and discuss any needs and aspirations prior to starting with Green Angels.

You can complete both our application and welfare forms as follows:

Courses will run within the Fort Burgoyne site and are delivered in partnership with The White Cliffs Countryside Partnership.
