HHSS Open Day

Bodnant Garden is part of the Heritage Horticulture Skills Scheme (HHSS), which trains gardeners in specialised heritage horticulture skills. The scheme provides successful candidates with a 14-month, bursary-supported placement at one of several top horticulture sites in Wales, including Bodnant Garden.

There's an open day for the next round of funding on 10 June at Belle Vue Parc, Newtown. Why not go along and find out about the scheme?
