A capacity crowd of 120 members enjoyed a walk through Lahaye's Garden at Government House, followed by a warm welcome from Her Excellency the Governor, an informative talk by gardener Tara Edmondson, and a superb selection of canapes themed for the occasion by chef Ainstie Wagner.
Lahaye's Garden is a recreation of a vegetable garden established at Recherche Bay in 1792 by a French scientific expedition led by Rear Admiral Bruni D'Entrcasteaux.
