As part of the Level Two Personal Achievement Award Learners have been working towards their SQA Community Award and the John Muir Award by helping to develop the College Garden Area around the GK Velocity Cycling Hub.
Learners within this class have been working with Glasgow City Council Countryside Rangers learning about Wild Flowers (See Glasgows FlowerPower Programme) and the Health Benefits attached to being active outdoors. In the attached images some of the class can be seen constructing a a small rope fence around the Wild Flower Garden at Springburn. In addition to the fence they have also been erecting a beautiful 'Wild Flower Garden Sign'.
This has been a joint effort with Iain Gordon and staff from Estates have helped with the project. In the images we can see Chris (Estates Team) talking to the learners about the type of concrete they will use when installing the posts for the rope fence and sign. The Wild Flower Garden Sign was created by Olly (Joiner from the Estates Team). Olly also helped to shape the small posts that were sourced for free and painted by our learners.
It is anticipated that the Wild Flower Garden will act as a platform for future projects around the college and foster further departments working together towards a common goal.
