Vineyard Garden Centre

On weekdays, our students work in the garden centre alongside an instructor, potting, pricing, labelling plants, watering, checking stock, serving customers, handling money and tidying up.

To find out more about the garden centre, including volunteering opportunities and the latest offers on plants and compost, visit the Vineyard Garden Centre website.

Every penny spent in the Garden Centre, whether it’s on plants, compost, bedding, plant labels, garden implements, or craft items created by our students, goes towards the work we do.

Open Monday to Friday 11.00am – 3.00pm; Saturday   10am -4pm . 


Kent Log Sales

Kent Log Sales is a unique service run by our students and managed by Fifth Trust staff, supplying high quality seasoned and unseasoned logs across East Kent.

We can deliver bulk bagged logs direct to customers across the Canterbury, Whitstable, Dover and Folkestone areas and stack them where required. We can also advise customers on the type of logs best suited to their purpose.

All profits made from the sale of logs go towards the work we do.

Art and Design

Many of the pieces produced by students are offered for sale in our café or at local craft fairs and farmers’ markets. All profits are used to purchase materials and fund new projects and, knowing this, students enjoy a purpose to their work.
