The Course, is produced by us here at the Design Charity, and course founder William Butterworth (MLD) is no stranger to designing award-winning gardens, having previously won 2 golds and a silver gilt medal with his gardens at Chelsea, Hampton and Tatton RHS Flower Shows.
The courses can vary, between 4-8 weeks in length, and usually take place at weekends, however if demand is high we can run courses at other times too! Please do enquire if you would like us to run the course at your school, college or place of work! We would love to hear from you.
