All great cities have colleges or campuses that teach horticulture! Melbourne is no exception. I teach and research at the Burnley Campus of the University of Melbourne where 2016 marks 125 years of horticultural education, engagement and research at the laboratories, nursery, historic gardens and field station of the campus' eight hectares. There is much to celebrate for this anniversary in the design, management and maintenance of gardens, vegetation and landscapes by generations of Burnley graduates. Click on the link below for more information and register to get updates for the 2016 events. I will write more about Burnley's history throughout 2016
The following timeline is your guide in lieu of the full program. Stay tuned for details.
