Pot Luck Sessions at Dunedin Botanic Gardens

Number 18 - July 1999


Public and Adult education at the Dunedin Botanic Garden includes a weekly plant question and answer session held in the Information Centre (opened in September 1996). These sessions, which are called 'Pot Luck' (because any plant topic can be discussed) are open to the public and are free of charge.

They are informal and are run by the Botanic Garden's Curator and Information Services Officer. Each week a topic or plant of interest in the garden is chosen to discuss. Often a guest or 'expert' is also invited to speak about their specialist subject. People are encouraged to bring along plant identification problems or garden questions and the staff endeavour to answer them.
