My time working at University Park and Sportsground.
Pros: mixing with people on open days, looking round the buildings like archeology museum, and showing people the beautiful grounds.
Cons: long hours in winter on the sports ground, for rugby training.
I worked on a variety of jobs each day including cutting grass, pruning shrubs, planting bedding, spraying and weeding, plant identification. City and Guilds Horticulture and Fine Sports Turf and Botanical names of plants/shrubs.
My team leader who used to work at your garden centre in your nursery, was a great help to me. I learnt a great deal from – more... him regarding Plant Science/Botany.
The hardest part of the job was in the winter gritting with salt/grit.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working outdoors meeting people. – less
