Green Wellies Horticultural Project

Green Wellies is an employment training scheme which gives trainees the opportunity to learn a range of horticultural skills at bases in Pontypool and Cwmbran.

Trainees learn how to grow vegetables and bedding plants, as well as producing decorative items like Christmas wreaths and hanging baskets. They also learn about health and safety, customer services and develop team-working skills.

The project supports trainees to develop their maximum potential and learn skills which will enable some people to enter the job market, with or without continued support. The highest standards of production are encouraged so that Green Wellies products can compete in the marketplace.

Who is it for?

The service is for people aged between 18 and 65 with learning disabilities or mental health needs.
