Our Member Speaker this month is Professor Tim Entwisle (CSSA Patron) - Evergreen: The Botanical Life of a Plant Punk
Tim Entwisle is an Australian botanist. He has worked as executive director of the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney, director of Conservation, Living Collections and Estates at Kew Gardens in London and is currently director of Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria. He is an honorary professorial fellow at the University of Melbourne and is president of the International Association of Botanic Gardens.
Our Patron, Professor Tim Entwisle, will talk about his recently published memoire showcasing the amalgam of nature, science and culture that has shaped both Tim Entwisle and every great botanic garden.
