Hi, Chloe here, I have just come home from Cornwall and wanted to share what I’ve been up to.
For the last 3 months I have been volunteering at the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
At the Eden Project, I was working on a management plan for their orchids and planting a few in the amazon section of the rainforest biome. And at Heligan I was working in their jungle, ornimantal garden, productive garden and flower garden teams. I had a great time at both and learnt so much- especially being able to identify orchids that are older than 2 years old. A skill I didnt have before having spent too much time in the Lab. It was wonderfull living in Cornwall for a while as well, I am missing the milder weather allready.
Plans for the next few months include working at the lab in Malasia at MRSM school for January and February, to then join the team for the World orchid congress in Taiwan in March.
