Ten years ago the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria embarked on an ambitious project to collect, treat and distribute storm water from the catchment within and around the botanic garden.
Earth has daunting climatic and socioeconomic challenges. Gardens wish to do their part in preserving biodiversity, but best practices are essential when working with and protecting wild populations.
To be tenable in the modern age, botanical gardens are obligated to be more than just display gardens but are called to be active parts of their community, both locally and globally.
