Home Educators attain Level IV in the RHS School Gardens Scheme

Home Educators attain Level IV in the RHS School Gardens Scheme

The Royal Horticultural Society School Gardens Scheme is open to home educators.

The Dickinson Family have been working through the stages and were excited last December to be told that level four was now open to home educators.  They were awarded the certification and a voucher for enough plug plants to fill a large vegetable garden!

The plants arrived this morning, far too exciting to get dressed before unpacking them...!

The family will be sharing this bounty with other home educators at Friday's Meetup - bring pots or damp newspaper to take your plants home... maybe you can start working on the RHS scheme yourself!
