Green Routes is a social enterprise and charity established to provide high quality training and work experience in horticulture to young adults with additional support needs. This includes horticultural training, developing gardening, landscaping and social skills, with certification available up to and including Scottish Vocational Qualification (SVQ) Levels 1 & 2.
But Green Routes is much more than that. We are an organisation aiming to assist young people with additional support needs to become involved in the community and also to develop other practical skills including time management, communication and self discipline skills in a friendly and supportive environment.
