To join WFGA and register your interest as a trainee please click on the become a member button below and follow the steps outlined, or contact the office for one to be sent to you, and return with your cheque to the office. Once you have been accepted as a WFGA member your details will be forwarded to your local Regional Manager who will contact you and be able to answer any questions and discuss possible training.
PLEASE NOTE THAT IN LONDON THERE ARE FEW TRAINING GARDENS AND MANY TRAINEES IN WAITING. IF YOU WISH TO HAVE A CHANCE AT GETTING A PLACEMENT YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED TO TRAVEL OUT INTO THE COUNTRY – OR MAYBE STAY WITH FRIEND OR RELATIVES OVERNIGHT IN AN AREA WHERE THERE ARE MORE PLACMENTS AVAILABLE.
A trainee must be a member of the WFGA and remain a member for the entirety of the training.
Garden Owners should register their interest with the office and again details will be passed to the local Regional Manager. We require that garden owners join the WFGA as members to participate in WRAGS.
Theoretical training is obtained by many members taking the examinations of the Royal Horticultural Society and the City & Guilds. Some members gain further professional experience with other organisations such as the Professional Gardeners’ Guild.
Please note that both men and women are welcome on the scheme.
