OUR LIVING LANDSCAPE

Four highly qualified and experienced speakers present a series of stimulating talks around the ‘Our Living Landscape’ theme, culminating in the M J Barnett Memorial Lecture.

The M J Barnett Memorial Lecture was established to honour the memory of one of New Zealand’s most distinguished horticulturists, Morris John Barnett MBE, AHRHS, AHRIH (NZ) who died in 1964. Mr Barnett was superintendent of Parks and Reserves for 17 years. On the passing of the Domains act in 1946 (which saw the control of the Botanic Gardens and Hagley Park vested to the Council), he became Director of Botanic Gardens, Parks and Reserves, a position he held until his retirement in 1955. The CHS instituted the memorial lecture in 1965 to perpetuate his memory.
