Here is a video which takes you through all of the gardens, in order, from my Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship. Included is at least one picture from each stop with the names and places included.
If you require any further information about my project or the places I visited, please message me.
As you may be aware I was fortunate enough to be awarded a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Fellowship to travel to Canada and the USA to examine the use of horticultural therapy as a medical treatment.
Applications are now open for people to travel in 2015 so if you would are based in the UK and would like to travel to see best practice in your occupation with the aim of using the knowledge gained to improve your profession, community and the people you work with then please follow this link: http://www.wcmt.org.uk/applications/apply-online-for-a-2015-winston-churchill-fellowship.html
I must say that they have been the most organised, professional, supportive and understand organisation I have ever worked with and would encourage people to apply.
As posted on my Winston Churchill Fellowship blog page (www.thetravellinght.wordpress.com), I have recently completed the report on the findings of my horticultural therapy travels to the USA and Canada. It has been published on the WCMT website and is free to read and download from: http://goo.gl/NroUSc
I am delighted and somewhat humbled to announce that I have been awarded a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship to research and experience horticultural therapy practices in North America.
The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust funds people to travel and visit places carrying out best practice in their professional field. The Trust started after the death of Winston Churchill and people have been travelling under the Trust since the 1960’s. At present the Trust offers 125 fellowships each year.
This is generally the main reason things have gone a little quite on this blog recently as I have been organising flights, accommodation and visits.
In order to raise the profile of the Winston Churchill Trust and not to hijack this one I have set up a separate blog which will document my thoughts, feelings and findings as I progress throughout the project. This blog can be found here: http://thetravellinght.wordpress.com/
More information on the Churchill Trust can be found here: www.wcmt.org.uk I fully recommend looking at the website and considering an application. They have been an absolute pleasure to work with, very supportive and understanding throughout.
