MLA Alum Hendry Awarded RHS Fellowship

Landscape Architecture alumna Molly Hendry (MLA, 2016 and BS Hort, 2014) has been awarded the 2016-2017 Royal Horticultural Society Interchange Fellow. Each year the Garden Club of America selects one representative from across the United States to participate in the exchange program. Founded in 1948, the Interchange Fellowship is a reciprocal program sponsored jointly by UK’s Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and USA’s Garden Club of America (GCA).

As part of her fellowship, Molly will spend ten months in the United Kingdom working alongside leading horticulturalists, designers, and landscape architects.  Molly will be placed in some of the most exciting gardens and botanical institutions across England and Scotland, including the Royal Horticultural Society Garden Wisley in Surrey; Great Dixter House and Gardens in Rye; the Eden Project in Cornwall; Royal Botanic Gardens of Kew and Edinburgh; Sheffield University at Sheffield; the Winfield House in London; Tresco Abbey in the Isles of Scilly; and the Chelsea Flower Show in London. 

Molly’s graduate research, titled “The Garden Project: Reclaiming the Garden as an Intimate Connection to Place,” explored how the garden brings humanity into tension with nature over time. As an extension of her graduate research, Molly will be journaling her experiences and chronicling interviews on her website at Roots and Ramblings .
