RHS Young School Gardeners of the Year 2018
Supported by Gabriel Ash
14 years old from Dumbarton Academy, West Dunbartonshire
Through his work in the garden Cameron has found something to be enthusiastic about and he positively encourages others to do the same. Most garden club members are there because of him and together they’ve transformed a field of waist-high weeds into a proper working garden.
"I was impressed by Cameron’s hard work, planning skills and how he’d got so many of his initially sceptical classmates into gardening. No mean feat!"
"Through Cameron's work in the school grounds, he has created a remarkable space for others to enjoy, as well. It was so inspiring to hear how he changed the opinions of other students and encouraged them to get involved in creating the garden. And it seems likes he has plenty more plans in the pipeline - we can't wait to see how the pizza oven and pond turn out!"
