Level 2 - By Level 2 you should be beginning to grow plants and use tools safely, and understand basic gardening terms.

Level 3 - Level 3 is about building on practical skills, growing a range of plants and understanding environmental issues.

Level 4 - At Level 4 you should be using tools professionally, growing and harvesting produce throughout the year, and beginning to fundraise for the garden.

Level 5 - At the final level, you should be sharing the garden with your local community and passing on skills to others. You should also be using the garden to teach curriculum subjects
