Caitlin Sawyer’s (2014 Horticulture Awardee) report
Caitlin Sawyer the 2014/15 Sir John Pagan Horticulture Awardee has returned from travelling on her award, and has made the very most of it with experiences such as being involved in the 2015 Chelsea Flower Show!
“This Award presented me with some of the most amazing experiences. One of which at the Australian Institute of Horticulture awards dinner, chatting to some of the horticultural greats. I had the pleasure of meeting my childhood superhero and Better Homes and Gardens presenter Graham Ross. After chatting with him he soon introduced the possibility of not only visiting the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show 2015, but to have the chance to become part of the Australian team 2015! I jumped at the opportunity and was soon introduced to the lead landscape designer Charlie Albone and his landscape team including Mick Conway from Conway landscaping. It proved to be a definite highlight of my trip; being one of the best things I’ve ever been a part of and something I’ll never forget.”
