Peter Sergel — Manager, Hamilton Gardens

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.
