Five young people gained a level one NVQ while one gained a level two NVQ at Capel Manor.
Three-quarters of the money came from local government grants, the Learning & Skills Council and various other charities. Eleven staff were employed by Roots and Shoots and staff costs accounted for almost half the expenditure.
Youngsters carried out a variety of activities. As well as gardening and horticulture, they also received training in general skills such as maths, IT and English as well as life skills and problem solving.
They worked on the land, sold produce and worked in a bottling press for apple juice. There were also several open days.
