A one hundred page pictorial record of the Botanic Gardens, this book will take you on a journey of discovery as to how a community created a dream!
The book demonstrates the extraordinary resilience of members of the Friends of the Gardens and the local community who, with the generous support of the local Council and many other organisations, worked on despite the ravages of bushfire, flood and wind storms, to create a wonderful place with visitor numbers nudging 50,000 in the past year (2015).
Using photos from our archives and from more recent collections it illustrates how this magnificent place among the Gum Trees has blossomed from very humble beginnings when a handful of people sought to realise a vision, to what has become a showplace within the Eurobodalla Shire.
In words and photographs “In among the Gum Trees” seeks to acknowledge the achievement of so many as we celebrate our 30th year.
Great as a gift, or for placing on your coffee table!
