His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd)
Governor-General of the Commonwealth Of Australia, and Lady Cosgrove with Jerrabomberra Primary School Students.

 

BGANZ is are delighted to announce that the Governor-General of Australia, Sir Peter Cosgrove, launched the 2017 BGANZ Open Day in Australia.  

 

His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd) launched the second annual Botanic Gardens Australia and New Zealand Open Day, by planting the rarest Banksia in the world, Banksia vincentia.

 

The critically endangered Banksia vincentia was only discovered in 2008, and there are only 6 known plants in the wild confined to a single small population near Jervis Bay, NSW.

 

The planting by His Excellency and Lady Cosgrove of this threatened species signifies the Gardens ongoing commitment to conservation of plants for future generations. They were assisted by children from Jerrabomberra Primary School.

 

This year over 70 gardens have signed up for the Open Day, which will be held on Sunday, 28 May (the last Sunday in May). Every state and territory in Australia will be represented, and gardens on both North and South Island in New Zealand will be taking part. 

 

The theme for this year is "Botanic Gardens Conserving Plants - Our Lives Depend On It." The Open Day will help raise awareness of the conservation efforts of gardens across Australia and New Zealand, as well as encourage people to visit their local botanic gardens.

 

Of course, the Open Day will also be lots of fun! Already, we have gardens planning guided tours, children's activities, live music, plant sales, exhibitions, potting demonstrations, Q&A sessions, special behind-the-scenes nursery displays, theatre performances, orienteering courses and community afternoon tea picnics, plus many more exciting activities!

 

Check out our events page to find out what will be happening at your local gardens.
