The emergence of the Mediterranean garden in Australia evolved with the first and second generation of European migrants, many of whom were from rural and village backgrounds. Unlike their early British counterparts, they brought a range of skills, farming practices and traditions from their homelands that were much more in keeping with the Australian environment. A wonderful array of vegetables, fragrant herbs, and fruit-bearing trees distinguished the backyard gardens of early migrant communities. Join us for this delightful exhibition and guest speaker Trevor Nottle to celebrate our gardening history. Stay for some garden nibbles and refreshments! Bookings essential.
