Talk: La Trobe's Cottage and Grounds Tues 11 Feb 2020 8 p.m

Posted on Monday, 3rd February 2020 by Janine Rizzetti

At our next meeting, garden historian Helen Botham will speak about the garden created at Jolimont by Charles La Trobe.

Most Victorians are not aware that our first Lieutenant Governor, Charles Joseph La Trobe, developed a beautiful garden around his 12.5 acre Jolimont estate during the nearly 15 years he spent in Victoria. His home and garden became an oasis for him and his family in this foreign land.

After La Trobe returned to Europe in 1854, his estate was subdivided. The cottage remained until 1964- its story, until the present, will be revealed.

Please join us at the Uniting Church Community Centre, Seddon St Ivanhoe on Tuesday 11th February at 8.00 p.m. All welcome.
