Hi everyone this is my final blog as a Trainee Heritage Gardener at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse. I am leaving and going straight into a job which is great. Through doing this traineeship I have gained the necessary skills to be more employable which has lead to me having a choice of two jobs. So I am now joining a tree surgeon and am going to gain a level 2 NVQ in trees and timber and gain some tree related qualifications. I really enjoyed working in the woods at Holkham and learning about trees and shrubs throughout my traineeship that I think I will learn a lot from this new experience.
My future goals are to continue to learn and train as I am still young. And to start my own business as a professional horticulturist/arboriculturist in a couple of years and work in people’s gardens.
It’s been a great twelve months, which I am very happy to have been given the opportunity to do.
