Horticulture students triumphant at international garden show

26 March 2015

Congratulations to two of our Burnley students for taking out design prizes in the Achievable Garden category at this year’s Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. Heather Forward, a Masters of Urban Horticulture student, won first prize for her design "Rousseau's Jungle". She took inspiration for her garden from the jungle paintings of French post-impressionist painter, Henri Rousseau. Ben Taylor, a recent graduate of the Associate Degree in Urban Horticulture won third prize for his work "Grounding". His design is inspired by gardens that instil a sense of calmness and togetherness in our busy city.

Their garden designs will be on display in the Avenue of Achievable Gardens, Melbourne Exhibition Gardens, Carlton, until Sunday 29 March The functional garden installations demonstrate what can be easily achieved in your own backyard. It’s great to have two of our students showcasing their fabulous work.
