Growing, killing, learning & succeeding with plants

15 March @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$5 - $15

John Raynor’s 2 acre garden, Brookdale Farm at Emerald is a burst of tingles and surprises. Most of the garden plants are structured around form and texture, low maintenance and no irrigation. He has a scientific approach to design using the right plant in the right place. He advocates dividing and massing (for spectacular effect and to save money). His edible garden includes espaliered fruit trees and imaginative approaches to old ideas. This is a rare treat to learn about John’s own garden.

When: Wednesday 15 March 2017
Place: Room MB 10 (in the Main Building).
Burnley Campus, 500 Yarra Boulevard, Richmond.
Time: 7.00 pm for drinks and nibbles
7.30 pm for the talk.
Cost: $5 (members). Non-members = $15
Parking: available in the Boulevard
