Having worked in senior management for over 25 years, within both the Sydney Botanic Gardens and the Melbourne Botanic Gardens, Professor Entwisle is only too aware of what is required to keep public spaces at their peak.
An Honorary Professorial Fellow in the School of Botany at the University of Melbourne and a Visiting Professor in the School of Biological and Biomedical Science at Durham University, Tim is always open to an opportunity to educate on science, plants and gardens.
As an expert in freshwater algae, with a broad interest in all plants and related life-forms, Tim's contributions to the field offer an interesting and valuable perspective for anyone looking to learn more about how to create, sustain or preserve a green space. In his role as highly respected scientist and scientific communicator, Professor Entwisle will share his views on the preservation of green spaces at the Horticultural and Gardening Festival on Saturday 10 October.
Just one of the experts presenting at the festival, Tim will be joined by a host of speakers, including Ian Barker, multiple medal winner at the world renowned Chelsea Flower Show, and this year’s head judge of the festival’s display gardens. Also part of the line up is Ruth Czermak, who will share her own unique approach to landscaping, and Stephan Ryan, the festival’s MC, provides a unique perspective into rare plants.
And the fun doesn’t stop there! In addition to the wide variety of informative speakers available for education and entertainment, the festival offers a range of suppliers with the latest products on the market, display gardens created by leading landscape designers, music, art, food and cooking demonstrations.
