Ballarat Botanical Gardens and World War I Friends of the Ballarat Botanical Gardens: Gardens History Group
In November 2014 the Friends of the Ballarat Botanical Gardens History Group presented displays in the Robert Clark Conservatory. This series of panels detailed the contribution made by the Ballarat Botanical Gardens staff during World War 1. The research undertaken and subsequent public display, unearthed fascinating local stories and highlighted the impact the war had on Ballarat and around the world: the individual impact of absence and loss that war can bring. The display has been created to be shared and presented at other locations, sharing these significant local stories with others.
