The Planting Seeds – Grow Well project is the result of a funding bid to Health Education North West London. The area covered includes Hillingdon, Harrow, Hounslow, Ealing, Brent, Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham and Westminster. The project will initially run until the end of March 2015 and offers training to NHS staff working in community settings. The training focuses on healthy eating and gardening with the broad aim of increasing understanding of the benefits of these activities for clients, and where appropriate enabling staff to set up and run sessions for clients in their own setting.

We are looking for a self-starter who is confident in setting up and running training sessions and who is capable of leading the project. The successful candidate will have a good working knowledge of gardening/ growing food using environmentally friendly methods and will preferably have some experience of running gardening groups with members of the community. It would be useful to have experience of running healthy eating/cooking sessions. It should be noted that we do have a budget to bring in additional trainers with specialist skills where needed to work with the postholder on specific sessions.
