Supported by Gabriel Ash

Rhys is currently studying for the RHS Level One in Practical Horticulture and is keen to become a landscape gardener in the future. He has already approached a local rugby club to try and secure work experience looking after the pitch. He has amazing dedication and passion for horticulture and is often found carrying out the jobs others would rather not such as cleaning equipment and sterilizing pots and trays.
“A hard working and knowledgeable young man – he has clearly gets a lot of pleasure from gardening.”
"It's amazing to hear how Rhys helps at his local community allotment and how this in turn helps him to feel more involved with where he lives."
