Sean Fredericks has been awarded the prestigious 2015 Thanet Earth Discovery Fellowship.

Sean Fredericks, currently studying for a BSc (Hons) in Commercial Horticulture at Hadlow College, has been awarded the 2015 Thanet Earth Discovery Fellowship. The presentation, which took place in the college’s Rural Regeneration Centre, involved guests representing all parts of the horticulture industry. Guest speaker, Chris Atkinson, who is Professor of Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Change at the University of Greenwich, spoke about The Way Forward: Linking People, Knowhow and Business. Thanet Earth has also selected Donna Wolfe, currently in her first year studying for BSc (Hons) in Commercial Horticulture at Hadlow College, to manage a pepper trials greenhouse. This is the fourth year that Thanet Earth has demonstrated their support for education and training in this way. This innovative award will involve Sean in working on new product development (NPD), something that is crucially important in the fresh produce industry. The presentation was followed by a Champagne celebration and luncheon.
