GDJ editor wins industry award

The editor of the Garden Design Journal, the magazine of the Society of Garden Designers, has won the coveted Environmental Award at the Garden Media Guild Awards 2017. Stephanie Mahon was recognised for a series of three articles on garden design for health and sustainability. 

The Garden Media Guild Awards celebrate the best of horticultural communications and entries are judged by a panel of experts in the field. The awards ceremony was held at The Savoy in London on 23 November. 

Stephanie said: “I was delighted to receive the Environmental Award for my features in the Garden Design Journal. Sustainable design and therapeutic gardens are such important topics, and they need to be discussed as much as possible. As the magazine for professional garden designers, it is important that the GDJ is raising these issues and fostering more engagement and awareness about them."
