Irene Fletcher Returns as Education Manager

VBG team expands to fulfil its education potential

August 24th

We are pleased to announce that Irene Fletcher, Education Officer at VBG until 2008, will return full time to VBG in September 2012.

Irene was greatly missed by staff and particularly by the students of the numerous courses she ran while at VBG.  Upon her return her new role will include bringing back the popular courses and clubs as well as expanding her role into outreach schemes and developing educational events at the Garden.

The Forest School programme has already begun with a local nursery, see picture below.

Irene has already secured significant external funding for an exciting new project with local schools and is looking forward to building the VBG Curriculum Planner, returning VBG to its status as a RHS Test Centre.
