This scholarship supports British citizens who want to travel overseas to gain knowledge, experience and best practice to benefit others in their UK professions and communities, and society as a whole.
Travelling Fellowships will be awarded in the horticulture category, in partnership with the RHS and the application process is now open.
Applications are welcomed from people involved in any aspect of historical or contemporary landscape design.
Among those travelling this year, in this category, are:
- Anna de la Vega, the owner of The Urban Worm, an organic waste management and gardening project in Nottingham. She will be travelling to Cuba and the USA to investigate approaches to food production and worm composting.
- Matthew Smith, a gardener from Evesham, who will be travelling to France and South Africa to explore the flora of the region as discovered by historical plant hunters.
