Landscape Architecture Masters helps Alumna Gaby's business grow Articles

We're ambitious for every student at our university, and so it's great to see our almuni succeed.  Gaby Evans was recently featured in the Daily Express and shared how, when she thought all hopes of a career were over, a part-time job at Petersham Nurseries in Richmond rekindled her passion for plants which began as a child helping her parents in their community garden allotment.

Winning a place on The Prince's Trust enterprise programme which helps young people with viable business ideas was a turning point. She learnt how to write proper business plans and practical skills such as learning about tax, commercial law and setting up a website. As well as studying for a landscape architecture masters degree during the quieter winter months.

Her reward is not only a thriving gardening business but also a gold medal for her charity sponsored garden that was displayed at the 2015 RHS Hampton Court Palace show.
