On 22nd May, students from the Aurora Centre hosted their second market stall Aurora Grows event, at the College showcasing their College grown plants; along with bespoke plant pots with unique patterns as designed by the students.
The stall allowed the opportunity for both students and academic staff to see the lovely plants on display and buy them as a gift for their home and a loved one. Also, the students designed bags to go with the plants.
From the Garden plant sale, our students learned about money management and customer care skills.
Carol Glosing, a course tutor of the Aurora Centre, said: "the students from the Aurora have worked hard grown these plants and then selling them at the College. "
Following the success of the sale of the College grown-plants, there are plans to have the student's plants displayed at the 2020 Chelsea Flower Show.
