From Cultivate London to Kew Gardens!

Congratulations are in order!

Cultivate London’s Senior Apprentice, Darrell Bennett, has just clinched a coveted Apprenticeship position at Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, one of the world’s leading botanical gardens, and we couldn’t be more proud of him!

He joined us in the spring of 2014, after participating in Ealing Council’s Pathways programme, and has since completed a both Level 2 and Level 3 Diploma in Horticulture (delivered in partnership with Capel Manor College).

While at Cultivate London he has been instrumental in helping run our plant nursery, and took the lead on a major site move in the winter of 2015/16.  He is a talented grower as well as a skilled builder, and we are fortunate to have had him as a member of our team for the past three years.

He will start three years of training in botanical horticulture at Kew in August, and we wish him the best of luck!
