FOBG Newsletter

The Friends produce 3 Newsletters each year. ‘Papyrus’ contains information about the Gardens, features on plants and people and details of horticultural events around Melbourne.

Our tri-annual newsletter is normally only available for our financial members.

This edition, however is a special tribute and farewell to our Gardens Curator and friend Andrew Smith, on his retirement after 34 years of service to the Gardens, and we felt it should be freely available to the general public. Click on the link below to download this special edition.
