The Banks Lecture commemorates
Sir Joseph Banks, botanist on Cook's first voyage to New Zealand.
During a later distinguished scientific career he was Director of
the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, London for a period.
Public gardens can both
provide places of quiet leisure and recreation and also offer a
challenge to the interest and imagination of visitors. Balanced
and innovative presentations will fulfil both needs and offer much.
Inspiring a sense of community ownership brings its own rewards
in extra support.
How to achieve these
aims was discussed in the context of the successful development
of Hamilton City Gardens.
