RHS Young School Gardeners of the Year 2018
Supported by Gabriel Ash
Jessica Steven Roberts
15 years old from The Holt School, Wokingham
Jessica’s involvement in the garden has empowered her to make a positive contribution to the wider school community. She now leads the school gardening club and dedicates her free time at lunch to look after the garden.
"From leading the gardening club to supporting and inspiring other pupils, Jessica is a brilliant young gardener. Her use of the garden as an escape resonated with so many of us."
"The garden is clearly a place of solace for Jessica and it’s wonderful to see how gardening has become such an empowering tool for her and that she is passing on her new found knowledge to other students."
