Four undergraduate students recently received bursaries of £1000 each courtesy of the Geoff Hamilton New Gardeners’ Foundation.
Geoff Hamilton (1936-1996) was an English gardener and broadcaster, best known as a presenter for BBC 2 Gardeners’ World. Geoff’s legacy lives on at Writtle College, where he studied horticulture in 1958, through the generous bursary contributions the Geoff Hamilton New Gardeners’ Foundation offer to College students studying both Further and Higher Education. The trustees of the Geoff Hamilton Gardeners’ Foundation are Lynda Hamilton, Geoff’s widow, and Tony Hamilton, Geoff’s twin brother.
Applications for the bursary will be launching again for 2011/2012 academic year. It is open to both Further and Higher Education Writtle College Horticulture students. The closing date is 1 February 2012 due to an early Easter.
