Morgan has been a Register Member of the Society for 20 years and is a long-standing-member of the SGD Council. A former head of the landscape horticulture and design faculty at Hadlow College and programme leader for the Garden Design degree course, she is currently a visiting lecturer in horticulture and garden design and external verifier at colleges around the UK and runs Sarah Morgan Gardens.

She joined the SGD Council in 2014 as the member for education and has overseen many initiatives including the introduction of Educator Status for garden design courses and programmes in the UK.  

SGD chair Philippa O'Brien said: "I have worked alongside Sarah on council for many years.  She has great talent and a wonderful ability to take the long view to campaigns and society issues. I think she will be an excellent counterpoint to me as we work towards realising the many ambitions that council has for the society"

Morgan said: "I am privileged to support Philippa O'Brien and continue to support the SGD in my role on council.  As a member of the SGD I have received training, inspiration and professional networks that have been invaluable to my working practice in garden design over 33 years.  I would encourage all our members, and particularly those at colleges embarking on a new career, to get involved in the society and make the most of the opportunities this now established organisation can offer."
