Hadlow Horticulture student Jonathan Farthing receives prestigious award at college ceremony

The 2014 Thanet Earth Discovery fellowship was awarded to Jonathan Farthing at a ceremony held at Hadlow College. This was the third year that 
Thanet Earth has demonstrated support 
for education and training in this way. Jonathan recently completed a 
Foundation Degree (FdSc) in Commercial Horticulture at Hadlow College and is progressing to the full BSc (Hons) 
Degree course in September.

The award was presented by Judith Whittaker, Communications Manager for Thanet Earth, and the guest speaker was 
Dr David Pennell, a writer on horticultural research and technical issues. Pat Crawford, spokesperson for Hadlow College, said: “Hadlow, one of only a 
few colleges to offer a degree programme in production horticulture, is delighted 
to be associated with the Fellowship 
which represents a very significant contribution from the perspectives of Jonathan, the college and the entire horticulture industry.”
