About this Event

Fire Service Green Champions Programme

Most sessions are held at Wisley with the exception of September 15th this will be at Guildford fire station.

The RHS and Surrey Fire and Rescue Service are exploring ways to work in partnership to realise a common vision – to enable Surrey’s 26 Fire Stations to develop small gardens ‘green lungs’ that will directly impact the wellbeing of crews as well as the lives of local people as they are welcomed in to be part of life at the station.

The RHS are offering Surrey Fire and Rescue Service 6 Green Champion days held at RHS Garden Wisley. These sessions will enable attendees to start growing in their own stations. We are designing the courses to be appropriate to growing in all spaces. We will focus on growing plants and designing gardens that enable wellbeing using the five ways to wellbeing as a template: designing spaces that provide opportunities for physical activity, learning, taking notice, giving to others and connecting. Places are limited so please sign up for a place on Eventbrite
