In addition to the day job, I am currently a part-time lecturer at Truro & Penwith College delivering an award-bearing evening class in garden design. My horticultural qualifications date back to the RHS General Certificate (Distinction) in 1994, and culminated in a BSc (Hons) in Horticulture (1st) in 2008, focussed on Garden Design and Plantsmanship. I also studied Garden Design under David Stevens, FSGD, FI (Hort) in the 1990s. I have been lucky enough to enjoy valuable volunteering experiences at Trelissick, Trewithen, Abbey Garden Tresco and Enys Gardens.
