Begun in April 2019, the garden was born of a desire to supply a ‘salad bowl’ for our visiting Colobus Monkey troop. The subsequent decision to plant 133 indigenous trees and shrubs to encourage birds, bees and butterflies necessitated the felling of 60 Eucalyptus trees. Only a few remnant Eucalyptus trees remain. The final piece in the puzzle came in the form of a financial windfall from environmental enthusiast and art collector, Vivien Mather. And the project to plant a garden to show sculpture took flight.
