Cherry Orchard Garden Services CIC
Cherry Orchard Garden Services CIC (also known as COGS) is a non-for-profit organisation run for and by adults with learning disabilities who face many barriers being integrated into the local community. With the help of our support staff, the members of COGS are trained gardeners who provide practical work in the community by gardening for frail elderly people in the Burntwood & Lichfield area who struggle to maintain their gardens due to illness and vulnerability.
At COGS, we focus on increasing self-esteem and confidence, independent living and their practical skills such as cooking healthy meals and woodworking, which they now use to make planters, troughs and benches on commission for the local community.
We also offer travel training which helps those at COGS learn how to read public transport timetable, how to plan the route to get to the bus stop that they need to go to, when to get off the bus and walk to where they need to go.
We operate Monday to Friday, 8:30 to 15:00. COGS only close for bank holidays and a week over the Christmas period, barring unforeseen circumstances.
