Come and hear about Gordon Ford and his lineage as a naturistic landscape gardener in the tradition started by Edna Walling.

Gordon never did work for Edna Walling, but he treasured a letter she wrote to him. This visually based presentation looks at the rich history and connections contributing to the making of the natural Australian garden and why it is so strongly linked with an ‘environmental’ approach to garden design.

Annette Warner is a lecturer in landscape design at the University of Melbourne, Burnley Campus. She is a horticulturist and registered landscape architect whose interests span burrowing in archives, reading garden and landscape history and designing imaginary, extravagant gardens.

Venue: meet at Realm Foyer, Ground Level
