I work with Chris Beardshaw a TV gardener and award winning garden designer. Chris runs a 12 month mentoring scholarship scheme in the UK which is open to all people wanting to learn and develop their career in garden and landscape design.

Each year for those competing to be the next scholar we set a theme for them to design a garden scheme around. In 2011 will be setting the theme of Atom to tie into the IYC2011. We plan to launch the new theme at a major gardening event in May - The Malvern Spring Gardening Show and we firstly wanted to let you know our intentions but also ask if we can with your permission use your logo to display on the application paperwork. We would also like to ask if you wanted to be involved somehow in the launch of the theme? I am not sure if you are signing up ambassadors or spokespeople or even with your sponsors you have anyone in the UK that would be happy to be involved?

Chris Beardshaw is an ambassador for the IYB2010 which we were are actively involved in and helping to spread awareness of.

I would be delighted to hear from you to discuss further.

Kind regards,

Frances Toase
