Last year I had the pleasure of attending high tea in Geelong with Tim Entwisle in support of the Friends of Geelong Botanic Gardens. Their high tea event is something special and a gathering that is also very informative and social. Of course the venue at Truffleduck presents a traditional high tea to impress.
This year the event returns and promises to deliver another splendid opportunity. Join members and community folk as we take in the wisdom of Dr Philip Moors, OA – Past Director and Chief Exec. Royal Botanic Garden, Melbourne. Dr Philip Moors was last year recognized with the Officer of the Order of Australia (OAM) for “distinguished service to conservation and the environment through contributions to the botanical and scientific community and the promotion of Australian flora.”
Dr Moors will speak on topics including climate change and the future of gardens in this context. A very relevant and interesting topic and a chance to share great food and company.
Please download the informative PDF brochure for this event or take note of event details below. RSVP is required by June 16th and the event was near capacity last year. I recommend you add this to your social calendar today.
