An illustrated book on a selection of the National Trust (Victoria) gardens by acclaimed garden historian Dr Anne Vale.
Anne is a writer, garden historian, garden photographer, public speaker, a past chair of the Australian Garden History Society’s Victorian branch, and a retired university lecturer. She is the author of Influential Australian Garden People: Their Stories (2016), the sequel to her award-winning Exceptional Australian Garden Makers (2013). Well versed in the recording and assessment of gardens with history, Anne operates the consultancy practice Heriscapes. Having written garden guides and histories on significant Australian heritage gardens, we were pleased to have worked with Anne on the publication of this book.
Anne has expertly woven together the stories of Trust gardens in Victoria by using the rich collection of primary sources held by the Trust and by drawing on the wider scholarly community to which she belongs. The narrative of the book makes use of gardens as sites linking people and cultures across various time frames and places. Connections extend out into the community, with public and private plant material and collections shared and celebrated between multiple generations, cultures and locations. The book also draws on the role of our volunteers in the ongoing custodianship of our historic gardens and landscapes.
Gardens of the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) is an important installment in our evolving knowledge of our properties, unlocking their natural and environmental history, which is often overlooked in architecturally based studies.Gardens of the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) is a limited edition publication.
