USA to UK |  Adam Banks

Adam is the RHS Interchange Fellow for 2023/24 and wishes to use this opportunity to learn more about woody plants, their longevity, seasonal appeal, scientific significance, and grandeur – a passion ignited while working at the Arnold Arboretum, USA. Adam is also interested in seeing how UK garden institutions promote culturally inclusive learning spaces for visitors and gardeners.
