Goodbye to REEP McLaren Scholars
Saturday sadly marked the end of our inaugural REEP McLaren Scholarship programme in England. Well done and thank you to Inés Parias-Cervera (Spain), Nezha Kejaat (Morocco) and Rhiannon Matravers (England) for being the first ever inter-horticultural REEP McLaren scholars!
What an experience our three scholars had too! They planted borders for Shakespeare Birthplace Trust Gardens, wove willow at Cressing Temple Tudor Garden, pruned topiary at Hever Castle, discovered sacred geometry at Ham House, designed an Anglo-Moroccan-Spanish Garden for Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens, discovered new plants at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, studied medicinal plants at the Royal College of Physicians Medicinal Garden, and explored the historic gardens at Kenilworth Castle, Inner Temple, Birmingham Botanical Gardens and Hampton Court Palace!
Despite their busy schedule our scholars found time to interact with each other, share their different cultural backgrounds and enjoy each other’s company after hours too. You can share in the scholars’ afterhours experiences by clicking on the image below.
