Second August Update

The master plan has been and will continue to be embedded in a rigorous consultation with stakeholders, based on the expert knowledge of our staff, as well as over site from the Landscape Advisory Group and a Project Control Group.

Throughout July and August, the university community was widely consulted on the value of the System Garden and the identification of key opportunities going forward.

More than 30 people have been involved in the development of this plan, including key stakeholders from the School of Botany, Horticulture and Agricultural Science, as well as external advocates and school teachers that use the garden as a teaching and learning tool. This engagement established that the Garden today is primarily used as teaching and learning resource, as well as a high amenity leisure garden.

See further outcomes of the engagement in our September update and have your say in our Tell Us! tab.
