Horticap is a charity located on the edge of Harrogate, with a working nursery where adults with learning difficulties are taught to develop skills through the practise of horticulture.

The charity were keen to improve their income stream, safeguarding the valuable work they undertake, so we redeveloped their existing site – including the extension of their shop and café – and improved the site entrance and parking to facilitate easier access for students and visitors. To further facilitate Horticap’s educational work, we upgraded their existing poly tunnels to new glass houses.
