Sat 18 July: 2–3.30pm
Join Dr Lenore Coltheart for a lecture delving into the history of Lanyon’s food gardens. Fascinating elements of the gardens include the remnant almond grove, with recent research suggesting an historic thread that links neighbouring landholder Thomas Hyacinth Macquoid in the 1830s to Mary Cunnngham, horticulturalist Charles Weston, and Commonwealth war historian Charles Bean in the 1920s.
