Nigel’s invited appointment means that the Department of Landscape Architecture now has two Fellows of the Landscape Institute amongst its staff. Earlier this year Helen Woolley graduated from Chartered Membership of the LI to full FLI.

Speaking in his final address as President of the Landscape institute in July 2020, Adam White welcomed Nigel as one of 23 new members into the Landscape Institute College of Fellows.

Nigel said: “It is a huge honour to be invited to be a Fellow of the Landscape Institute. It’s a real vindication of my own mission to take every opportunity to promote the case for creative, innovative and transformational planting. I hope that being a Fellow will enable me to make the case even more strongly, and to support and encourage others to do so”.

On her appoinment in April 2020 Helen said: “I am delighted to be able to join the College of Fellows of the Landscape Institute, in recognition of my longstanding membership, contribution to the profession and research and impact about children's outdoor environments. I hope this will give me an opportunity to contribute to some of the core issues of the Institute including the importance of Higher Education for the future of the profession.
