WAYNE, PA – The Chanticleer Foundation Board of Directors announces Indianapolis Museum of Art Horticulturist Gwyn Rager as the latest recipient of the Chanticleer Scholarship in Professional Development.

Ms. Rager will attend the “Art of Gardening at Great Dixter” Symposium in East Sussex, England to study garden design and maintenance.  Following the Symposium, she will visit gardens throughout the UK and Europe.  Her Scholarship also supported participation in a four-day garden design workshop presented by Chanticleer and led by British Garden Designer Annie Guilfoyle this past July.

The Chanticleer Scholarship in Professional Development promotes creativity and leadership by providing professional development opportunities for public garden staff.  Established in 2008, the Scholarship has supported 47 public garden professionals from gardens of all types and sizes.  It has two core components, academic study to improve leadership skills and support of travel to meet with leaders to build on that academic experience.  Each Scholar has the opportunity to visit other gardens, including Chanticleer, a 35-acre pleasure garden in Wayne, PA. The next scholarship application deadline is November 1, 2017.
