In the following you can view a National Trust video with a WRAGS trainee talking about her training:

             The WFGA is the charity to join if growing is your concern in life. If your need is for education, then cultivate your skills with this specialist organisation and register for the unique partnership ‘Work and Retrain As a Gardener Scheme’.          

Training, employment and advancement for those working on the land have been the key aims that have underpinned the WFGA for over a hundred years.

Members of the Association have been the ‘movers and shakers’ of their generation and have included Gertrude Jekyll, Eve Balfour, Brenda Colvin, Beatrix Havergal, Katherine Courtauld and Louisa Wilkins.

Royal patronage has been awarded to the work of this organisation – our first President was Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll. In 1959 Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, visited in celebration of the Diamond Jubilee and Prince Charles is one of our Garden Owners on the Work and Retrain As a Gardener Scheme.
