News and updates:

Tracy Muir (Visitor Services Team Leader, Wellington Botanic Garden), Tim Uebergang (Horticultural Curator, System Garden Officer, The University of Melbourne) and Ben Liu (Creative Producer, Learning and Participation, Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria) joined our team from Feb 2021.
  • BGCI Directory of Expertise: everyone is invited to submit their skills to be on the directory. More info here.
  • Botanic Gardener magazine – submit your article by 12 April for inclusion in the upcoming issue, the theme is ‘Plant Science.’
  • Botanic Gardens Day and Plant Challenge: watch the BGANZ website for news about the Botanic Gardens Day panel on 31 May, and fun Plant Challenge for the whole month of May.
  • Would you like to be a panellist? BGANZ is looking for an expert on wellbeing and how botanic gardens are places for health and wellbeing. Contact Eamonn for more details.
  • Looking for fun tools for online meetings? Try icebreaker  and gathertown  – I’ve participated in both and they are great for informal meetings where you want your attendees to create connections in a fun environment.
