"I need to re-educate myself for financial purposes. I'm keen to start my own business in the organics sector." Having completed Horticulture level 2 Shelley went on to enrol on the level 4 Horticulture programme. "The level 4 programme will be very helpful because I'll be able to do market research as part of the business management paper in the programme. With her own four children now grown up Shelley is looking to the future. "I'm finding myself and finding a job. I'm enjoying it immensely - I should have done it ten years ago! "I'm formalising the knowledge that I already have. I have a need to nurture and gardening fulfils that need. Once your children are gone you still need to nurture something." Shelley's advice to anyone contemplating whether or not to study it's simple. "Just do it!"
