Join our Garden Curator on a small group tour to discover the secrets behind a botanic garden in summer. This rare opportunity includes a two-hour Garden walk, a 30-minute hands-on workshop potting bulbs, and a relaxed seasonal lunch at The Potager with an ornamental garden supervisor.
Curator, Greg Bourke, joined the team at the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden in 2011 and has been the Curator Manager since 2013. He is responsible for 20 horticulturalists and other staff, and oversees 252 hectares of exquisite garden. The garden is home to exotic and native plants alike including several endangered ecological communities such as the first translocation site for Australia’s own ‘dinosaur tree’, the Wollemi Pine.
Greg is a world expert in carnivorous plants, holding senior positions with various groups including his current role as Vice President for BGANZ (Botanic Gardens Australia and New Zealand). Greg is passionate about conservation, plant breeding and continues to study carnivorous plants and has a special interest in the plant families Goodeniaceae and Stylidiaceae.
