2 June

Lorraine Powell, President of the Victorian branch of the Australian Garden History Society, will speak on ‘Food and the Ballarat Botanical Gardens‘.

This talk is concerned with the Ballarat Botanical Gardens and the theme ‘Garden to Table’, examining the contribution made by the Gardens to the growing of food. The Ballarat Botanical Gardens (BBG) were established in the wake of a tremendous population influx from across the globe, and the development of the BBG and Lake Wendouree can be traced from its aspirational planning and implementation to the present day.
