Could you be the next Triad Fellow?

Gardener fellowship

We've teamed up with Kyoto National Park in Japan and Longwood Gardens in America to launch the exciting Great Gardens of the World Triad Fellowship Scheme, which runs for one year.

Students get the opportunity to learn from a bonsai master, experience show gardening on a grand scale and get involved in conservation heritage management.
