New curator joins Eden Project

Horticulturist Rob Brett has moved from supervising the glasshouses at Cambridge University Botanic Garden to become the Eden Project's temperate curator.

Brett will be responsible for Eden's 13ha outdoor space and the Mediterranean Biome. He replaces Tom Keay, who moved with his family to France in spring this year to develop a large garden.

Brett has been the glasshouse supervisor at Cambridge since 1999 following an eight-year period at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. He has the Kew Diploma and a Master's degree in environment and development education.

Eden chairman of horticulture Don Murray said: "It's really exciting to be welcoming Rob to the Eden team. He's an inspirational educator, a strong leader and one of the most talented horticulturists in the UK. His appointment will mark a refreshing change for horticulture at Eden and will hopefully be the start of even greater things for us."
