Green-tech has donated over eight pallets of horticulture sundries to adult-education charity, Horticap.
Horticap provides adults with disabilities training in horticulture, allied crafts and rural skills. Alan Titchmarsh MBE is a Patron that works closely with the charity.
Green-tech, the landscaping product supplier is well known for its support of local and national charities. They donated a mix of pots, trays and hanging basket accessories which are being used by the students.
Horticap aims to provide students with learning disabilities a supportive working environment. They aim to help students extend their knowledge and social skills. This is through structured training using professionally qualified staff and volunteers. In addition, they have a large garden, which includes a wildlife and bird spotting area, that is open for members of the public to enjoy.
Phil Airey, assistant manager at Horticap said:
“A big big thank you to Green-tech for the donation of pots and trays. This will save us lots of money. You are stars. We are so happy that Green-tech has been able to support us and donate products that are so essential for us. Our students will use all these items which will grow plants for our beautiful garden or to sell in the shop which helps fund us.”
Green-tech’s marketing manager Lizzy Rose added:
“We were so impressed with the set-up at Horticap and what they achieve, we are happy to be able to help them. I had the privilege to meet two of the students who were a delight and an inspiration. Horticap transforms lives and it has been our honour to help them.”
