The Garden Club of America Interchange Fellow

Moore will be completing a three-year Kew Diploma program this summer prior to embarking on the yearlong GCA fellowship program based at Longwood Gardens. As part of the Kew experience and supported by a Royal Horticultural Society bursary, Moore traveled to the US to experience ecological gardens. Time was spent at Mt. Cuba Center, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and the private garden of ecological garden designer Edwina von Gal in East Hampton. The impactful experiences in the US focused Moore's interest in applying for the GCA Interchange Fellowship. Moore hopes to broaden a personal understanding of US native plants and ecosystems, observe the management of the natural areas at Longwood, and gain further skills in high-level horticultural techniques. Moore aspires to be a leader in public horticulture, predominantly ecological horticulture.
