The commitment and passion displayed by green-fingered trainees inspired to make a positive difference at Liverpool's Festival Gardens will be honoured at a special celebration ceremony.
This year 27 local people have taken part in the Big Lottery-funded Green Angels course – a free programme, provided by the Land Trust, which aims to improve the quality of life for local communities by providing new environmental training opportunities.
Participants, who come from a range of backgrounds across Liverpool, have benefited from undertaking courses that include: Countryside Management and Parks Maintenance, Business Skills, Environmental Education and Horticulture.
On Thursday 1 October, at Toxteth Town Hall, the culmination of all their hard work at Festival Gardens will be rewarded with a celebration ceremony, providing the participants with certificates marking the completion of the Green Angels courses and training.
Land, in particular public open space and wildlife, has always been my passion and here at the Land Trust I get to make a difference. I enjoy covering a large area of England and Wales and seeing a wide variety of sites. No site is the same, so it makes my job interesting.
