Cost effective signage – Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria – Cranbourne Gardens.

These are some of the things that I have been thinking about alot over the last few months.

Firstly, as I was writing an article for Janelle Hatherly for the last edition of The  BOTANIC GARDENer on the definition of interpretation (see page 30 here) and secondly this week as I prepared to talk to the latest network meeting of BGANZ Vic on simple and cost effective ways we can bring our gardens to life.

Here is the Powerpoint that I presented to BGANZ Vic:

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Cheers
