How to earn your badge
For number 2, you can learn how to use small tools, like a trowel or a hand fork. If you want to find out more, you can learn about bigger tools used by adults.
If you don’t have a garden or allotment you can use, you could try looking after a range of pot plants. Or you could see if there’s a scheme in your local community where there is something suitable. Your school might have a garden you can help with. Or your meeting place might have a space you can use.
Each young person who participates in the Programme, including badges and awards, should face a similar degree of challenge, and requirements can be adapted according to each young person’s abilities. For more information and practical tips see our guidance on flexibility
