Green Angels Hassall Green

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.

Delivered across Hassall Green Nature Reserve, South Cheshire, and Silverdale Country Park, Newcastle-under-Lyme, this Green Angels programme started in July 2019 and courses will run throughout the rest 2020 and beyond.

If you are interested, please still get in touch, and we will keep you informed about specific dates for courses when they are formally arranged.

Please note that all courses are now being delivered with measures in place to ensure that they are COVID-secure. This includes much smaller group sizes and enhanced hygiene facilities. More details will be provided upon application.

Working with The Land Trust and Groundwork has been a great success for all of us at Sherburn who took part. They were a brilliant team and had great knowledge about the local wildlife.
