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 related fields.
In this instalment, we hear from Nina Breidahl, who graduated from Burnley Campus with the Associate Degree in Urban Horticulture at the end of 2018. Since her return, Nina has been managing the farm and gardens at Brae Restaurant in Birregurra.
Nina says her OGV-sponsored tour taught her there is no garden that doesn't benefit from inclusive design. She believes her time spent in Scandinavia will give a perspective to her approach to every garden she encounters for the rest of her career. Nina sends her thanks to OGV for the amazing opportunity to see some of the best inclusive gardens of Scandinavia first hand.
