Four young horticulturalists are being offered an opportunity to sow the seeds of a career in gardening and agriculture. Thanks to the Kickstart scheme from the  Department for Work and Pensions, Hands of Hope Charity has four paid trainee grower positions available for 16 to 24 year-olds who are currently unemployed and claiming Universal Credit. 

The jobs are based at the Charity’s Walled Kitchen Garden in Hawkhurst. The new employees will become part of a small team developing a heritage walled kitchen garden and 22 acres of land.
