Collaboration

Community-based learning is at the heart of what we do. We work with a huge range of professional organisations who help us deliver our bespoke learning. This is just a flavour of who we work with:

ActivGardens Chantry Walled Garden Project 

This project offers life skills and work experience in a walled garden with extensive greenhouses, a workshop and cottage. Students learn a wide range of gardening and horticultural skills, as well as supporting the development of the business. Students learn basic construction and woodwork skills, for example building raised beds and benches. The Nursery Cottage has a small kitchen where students learn to cook what they grow into healthy meals. It also has quiet rooms for computer work and creative activities. The walled garden is set in 124 acres of parkland, where there are opportunities for conservation work and volunteering, in partnership with the Green Light Trust and Ipswich Borough Council, which has supported the development of the project. Suffolk New College runs horticultural courses on its own part of the site.
