A letter back from our first scholarship intern,  Valérie:

” I enjoyed a lot to do this scholarship during two weeks in the Ventnor Botanic garden. I was very happy to meet the staff and the other volunteers whom were very nice and helpfull; in particulary Kate Ingrem who gave me the opportunity to do various and very interesting work in different areas of the garden (cutting, propagation, seed collecting, weeding…). I have learned about plants which I didn’t know before ( Echium, Melaleuca alternifolia, Banksia, Lampranthus…). It was a very good and rich experience for me. So thank you very much, especially to Chris Kidd and Kate who organised all the things for this scholarship which was a succes for me.”  Valérie Martin-Chesnay.”
