The QEII Athol Patterson Bursary

As a result of a bequest to the QEII National Trust from Dr Athol Patterson, a bursary was set up in 2009 to support students at Massey University interested in sustainable farming practices. Dr Patterson was a doctor of tropical medicines and taught in various universities around the world before retiring to Waverley where he had two small dairy farms.
