About Green Routes

Green Routes is an organisation which has distinct goals. Since 2008 our main priority has been to build a positive learning environment where people with additional support needs can realise their potential and become equipped to make positive contributions to their communities.


What we offer

At Green Routes we offer:

  • training to a nationally recognised level in horticulture;
  • teaching of employability skills;
  • support for people with learning needs towards a positive future.


Where are we based

Green Routes is based in the walled garden at Gartmore House in the village of Gartmore, West Stirlingshire, Scotland. The training takes place in an organically managed community garden in safe, natural and friendly surroundings. Facilities include teaching beds, greenhouse and polytunnels, which also provide indoor horticultural teaching areas, workshop areas and built raised beds suitable for students in wheelchairs or those with limited mobility. Beekeeping is an expanding new development at Green Routes.

Training opportunities

The primary focus of our training is horticultural and is tailored to individual needs. Students can study to SVQ1/2 in Horticulture and also for the Royal Caledonian Horticulture Society Achievement Award. Our range of activities also provide individuals with excellent employability skills including communications, time management, self-discipline, self-motivation, initiative, self-confidence and problem solving. Programmes for school groups focus on developing a range of practical, personal and interpersonal skills.

What about other groups and organisations?

Green Routes can organise a variety of events based around full day or half days for community groups, schools, team building exercises and activities focused on personal and social development.
