Horticulture Social Enterprise – Walton Hall Academy

19 January 2018

Shaw Trust Enterprises deliver a range of horticultural, wood recycling and manufacturing services all across the UK.

Our enterprises help to create brighter futures within communities, offering local people a range of work experience and employment opportunities.

Before Christmas, Shaw Trust volunteer Gareth Cooper visited one of our Horticulture enterprises; Walton Hall, based in Eccleshall, Staffordshire. After a quick tour, he caught up with Team Leader Carl Gerrard and former volunteer Phil Kendal who gave their views on the Horticulture enterprise and talked about their experiences, the work they do, and the benefits of volunteering there. You can watch the video below.
Based inside the grounds of Walton Hall Academy the enterprise gives students easy access to the learning opportunities, skills and qualifications on offer for gardening and horticulture. The Eccleshall enterprise grows and sells a large range of plants, bedding and perennials throughout the year.
