Sue Jeffries Garden Advice and Training Tel. 07443 459818

As a fully qualified teacher with six years teaching experience I am well placed to pass on my passion for gardening, wildlife and food growing to young people.

I have developed, taught and assessed horticulture courses for Year 10 to Year 13 students and have also run healthy eating and food growing projects for Key Stage 1, 2 and 3 children as well as the parents of pre-school children.

In addition, I have led lunch-time,  

after-school gardening clubs and Eco-Therapy courses for Primary and Secondary Schools and family gardening sessions for toddlers upwards.

At a secondary school in Rossendale I set up and ran a 1600 sqm growing area complete with a 14m long polytunnel, raised beds and irrigation system.

Do you need to introduce more outdoor learning or develop some food growing projects in your school?

Do you need staff training to make sure you can deliver good quality learning opportunities about plants for Key Stages 1 and 2?

Would you like to promote Healthy Eating through a customised session for Key Stage 1 and 2 classes?

Does your PTFA or teaching assistants need help running an after school gardening club?

“Sue Jeffries delivers horticulture to Y6-7 transition pupils.  The activities are very popular with the pupils and help them develop team-work, co-operation and nurturing skills.  They also see the results of their work blossom over time which is a great boost to their confidence.  A lovely, calm and purposeful activity. “ Miss Taylor
