Friends of George Tindale Gardens



Whatever you call it, however you know it, being a Friend is fun and rewarding.
YOU are invited.....come garden with us.


George Tindale a research scientist at the Victorian Department of Agriculture and a keen horticulturist, and his wife Ruth, were intent on developing and enlarging the overgrown garden and land. Together they created paths, garden beds, established ornamental plantings and gradually extended the garden down the hillside. All under a canopy of giant eucalyptus (Mountain Ash). George passed away in 1977, and it was his wish that the garden should be preserved. After his death, Ruth donated the 2.4 hectacre garden to the Victorian Conservation Trust in his memory.

Every 2nd Tuesday from 13Jun2017 and the 2nd & 4th Saturday of each month. Hours are 9:30am to 12:30pm. We prune the garden's hydrangea collection & undertake general garden maintenance. Morning tea & coffee provided with convivial conversation. Bring garden gloves.
