Agriculture, Horticulture and Gardening Courses

Agriculture, Horticulture and Gardening Courses

We offer a wide range of agricultural courses here at Stonebridge. If you’re green-fingered and have a deep interest in all things outdoorsy, then we offer some excellent courses which are both theoretical and practical within the fields of agriculture, horticulture and gardening. These will not only help you explore your interests and passions further, but will provide you with all of the necessary skills to further your career ambitions, in these areas

We offer a unique course in hydrophonics. This is the cultivation of house plants by placing the roots in a liquid nutrient solution, rather than soil. Our hydrophonics course will guide you through the process of successfully operating your own hydrophonics set-up, as well as DIY hydrophonics.

If you’re a fungi fan then you could learn the principles and concepts of how to grow your own mushrooms. Our garden design courses will allow to unleash your creativity and create the garden of your dreams.

As well as providing a more in-depth understanding of horticulture, we provide a range of related horticulture courses such as farming management and farming machinery. They establish the skills and knowledge that’s needed to make a living from farming - something that often starts off as a small hobby.

You can learn about:

  • The scope and nature of the farm industry and farming management
  • Elements of style, basic techniques and professional tricks of garden design
  • Maintaining a garden in a healthy, presentable state
