Training Courses

Leitrim Flowers has been running successful training courses and workshops for many years. We are at the forefront of providing training for Ireland’s flower farmers and provide a training course specifically designed for those wishing to establish a cut flower business.

Our courses are aimed at both the professional and amateur. Courses are informative, interactive and enjoyable and include workshops on cottage gardening, creating a cut flower garden and natural flower arranging.We can also design a tailor-made course to suit an individual or group. We run our training courses at the renovated, traditional cottage on site.

Leitrim Flowers is very accessible and well serviced by road, rail and bus. We are an hour and a half’s drive from Dublin, an hour from Athlone and located just four miles off the N4. Within a fifteen minute radius we have an  extensive range of B&Bs and hotels, restaurants and bars. Carrick on Shannon is a ten minute drive away and an excellent base from which to take a few days’ break.

We have also held training courses and workshops elsewhere throughout Ireland. Our training partners have included Ballymaloe, The Organic Centre, The Organic Training Skillnet, Sonairte and Eco Tourism Ireland.
