Bankside Open Spaces Trust, Future Gardeners Scheme
As part of our pledge to give back to the community, Forge Architects have been carrying out pro-bono work for several charitable trusts and community groups over the last 25 years. One of the beneficiaries of this work includes Bankside Open Spaces Trust and their 'Future Gardeners' scheme.
Launched in 2016, Future Gardeners is a training and work experience scheme which gives its participants core skills to gain entry-level jobs in the horticultural industry. The course runs sessions over several London sites, with 76% of course graduates now working within the industry.
