Nurturing horticulture’s next generation
The Kew Guild and its members play a key role in horticultural education by encouraging and training the experts of the future. It is only through the support of our members that we can deliver on our educational promise.
As with any living thing, knowledge must be nourished and supported if it is to continue to flourish and grow. By encouraging the expertise and understanding of the next generation, we can ensure horticulture continues to flourish in the capable hands of truly knowledgeable, passionate individuals.
At The Kew Guild, learning and education have always been core priorities.
To support this objective, the Guild co-ordinates various educational activities.
- Facilitating funding for learning opportunities through our awards and bursaries
- Providing financial support for individuals participating in paid-for educational programmes, such as the Introduction to Horticulture @ Kew, which aims to encourage greater ethnic diversity in horticulture
- Sponsoring discovery events at Kew attended by horticultural apprentices and trainees
- Maintaining strong links with horticultural learning programmes, such as the Kew Diploma in Horticulture
- Promoting opportunities for furthering personal knowledge, such as those provided by the Kew Mutual Improvement Society
