He began his Horticulture apprenticeship with Kent Enterprise Trust on 3rd December 2018, with a view to developing skills that he may need for the future, and to support the Trust in its mission to help people get back into work. Working with the Trust has also given Ed the opportunity to begin a City and Guilds Level 2 Horticulture Course at Hadlow College, which would, is very beneficial for his plans to become self-employed.

Within Chelsea’s job role at Kent Enterprise Trust as a Business Admin and Reception Apprentice she has met a numerous amount of people, whilst gaining a brilliant relationship with some.
Her job isn’t the same on a daily basis. My role may include covering for others or even down at either of our gardens, Oasis or Jessops.
When she first started her job, she was quite shy and quiet, however she has gained a lot of confidence with herself and is always willing to feedback new ideas to the team on ways to improve as a charity or ideas which may advantage us in the near future.

Volunteers

Brian Stream
Brian Stream Walk Community Garden
“This land was going waste for 20 years and was brought to a good productive use. I started working here about 6 years ago. I look after the garden, keep plans for vegetable rotations and plots. I usually come in on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to water the plants. I enjoy helping people and passing on my knowledge.”
 Graham
Graham Stream Walk Community Garden
“I have been volunteering in the field of photography here since September 2016. I like working here because it helps in improving course of life. The garden offers a peaceful environment to learn and teach. It helps in training the individuals about health and safety, first aid, equipment training as well as confidence building. It enables people in hard times to have a lifeline with no pressure and/or demands. People who failed previously can feel a sense of achievement as there’s no one here who cannot do something.
​The idea of behind this is not only to make the land productive but also make it comfortable and environment friendly. This gives it a social aspect along with the productivity.”
Matt Stream

​“I have been volunteering here for over 5 years now, from watering the plants to edging the lawn. I’ve seen it from an empty field to this. I like volunteering here as I get to pick up new skills and make new friends.”
Justin
Justin Stream Walk Community Garden
​“I have been volunteering here for over 5 years now. I do a bit of everything here including maintenance, grass cutting, woodwork, etc. I like working at the garden because we are like a little community where everybody gets along here and helps each other without any judgements. The work environment is flexible and calming, with no pressure, but at the same time rewarding. If you are slightly secluded at home or elsewhere, you could always come in here, have a cup of tea, meet new people and socialise.”
Tom

Joe
Joe Stream Walk Community Garden
“I have been volunteering here for about 5 years now. I usually get involved with sowing, pruning, lawn mowing, planting tomatoes and lettuce. The garden, to me, is like a lovely social gathering where I meet new people, make new friends and gain more knowledge of gardening”.

“I am a volunteer photographer here and have been working here for a few months. I personally have been photographing for 40 years. I like the diversity and challenges here. I mostly like to work on the butterfly bed”.
Gemma
Gemma Stream Walk Community Garden
​“I have been volunteering here as a photographer since May 2017. The garden is a calm, de-stressing place where I can switch off from all stressful situations. I wish to contribute and help the garden as much as I can. I’ve donated taps and a fire bucket as I feel small actions can make a huge difference.”

Doug

“I started getting involved here recently, about a month or two ago. I volunteer here with many different things like picking plums, fruits and berries, planting as well as weeding. I like being able to do practical work and to socialise simultaneously.”
Neil
Neil Stream Walk Community Garden
“I have getting involved here for around 2 years now. I help with weeding, planting and making tea runs. I try to work in the tea shed more often to keep the people fed. I love learning new skills while working outside in the fresh air and socialising with colleagues. The work here intrigues me as it is very different to the work I used to do before. The way they have maintained the garden in keeping it tidy is appreciable.”
