George Garnett is a young man, still at school,  who shows great determination in pursuing his interest in botany  and the natural world.  He has already participated in an exploration project to the Peruvian Andes; he has completed an RBG Edinburgh field botany course;received a nomination for the Gilbert White youth  award  of the NBN Trust  in recognition of his contribution to terrestrial and freshwater recording and won a BSBI photo competition  - all in all, George is something of an inspiration to us all, not just  school children and students!
