Saruhan writes: ‘I am very happy to receive this bursary. I am planning to visit the botanical garden in Merano, (South Tyrol) Italy in May 2019 to be able to see the vegetation and the fully functioning garden.’

Once she has visited the gardens, she will be giving a talk to the EGT to tell us what she learnt. We look forward to that and will post news and pictures of the trip after May on social media and here. Details of the talk will follow.

To find out how to apply for the 2020 bursary, join us and keep an eye on our Website and Facebook.
