Travellers’ Tales Part One - Urban Agriculture in Toronto

News - 13 October 2019

The three recipients of OGV’s latest travel bursary have returned home from their travels, eager to share their stories. 

For the second year running, OGV distributed the $10,000 bursary amongst three students studying horticulture at the University of Melbourne. The bursary funds national or international travel to develop skills and knowledge in garden design and other related fields.

In our first instalment, we catch up with Clare Harvey, who is studying the Associate Degree in Urban Horticulture at Melbourne University’s Burnley campus, working at a nursery and various community gardens, and doing freelance garden design and installation. Clare used her share of the bursary to visit some of the diverse urban agriculture systems in Toronto, Canada.
