Cherry Orchard Gardening Scheme (COGS)

Provision of gardening services to vulnerable adults, however, the gardening is carried out by a team of trained gardeners all of whom have a learning disability. We maintain the grounds of the Memorial Hall and have a small nursery on site where new gardeners are trained. These gardeners then gradutate to working in the community, with national minimum wage, maintaining gardens for older people. This reduces the vulnerability of the elderly as their property appears well maintained.
