The café placement will include training in coffee making (barista skills) on a one day course as well as food hygiene training.
The gardening placements will include horticultural training at the park, as well sponsorship to take a horticultural course at Capel Manor (in Crystal Palace). Several courses are on offer, depending on previous experience and knowledge.
The gardening training is offered to five people, who will be asked to work five hours a week at Myatt’s, working either in the greenhouse or the wildlife area.
The café work experience people will be taken on one at a time, and will be required to work 25 hours a week for eight weeks.
These are volunteer posts and therefore no pay is available. We will pay registration and travel costs for people attending Capel Manor.
Candidates for both must be Lambeth residents, on low incomes and living in low income households. The scheme is funded by the Walcot Foundation.
Please contact Kasia Olszewska (firstname.lastname@example.org), Myatt’s park manager about the gardening placements, and Victoria Sherwin (Vsherwin@lambeth.gov.uk) about the café work experience.
