Introducing Greenhouse Greenhouse exists to help long-term unemployed people back into the world of work through gardening.

Our biggest jobs yet!

Over the last year we have shifted our focus into landscaping work. From laying patios and lawns to clearing and levelling gardens, as well as installing fences, pergolas and more, the team has grown in experience and capability.

Over the summer we put all these skills together to complete two full garden makeovers. The scale of the jobs was a step up for us and both had their challenges, but the customers were very pleased by the final result and we feel confident to take on jobs of all sizes now.

A growing team

In July Josh Maclean joined to lead the project, while Lewis continues to lead the site team. We’ve decided to employ people who have been out of regular work for a while, rather than volunteering. We have found this works better as people stay for long enough to get training and support to help them find permanent roles; as well as working more effectively with the team. This is working really well with the first person we have taken on.
