The National Gallery of Victoria’s exhibition of the French impressionist Claude Monet’s iconic garden at Giverny continues till September 8. The exhibition itself is quite extraordinary but what is outstanding is its “Friday Nights at Monet’s Garden” program. Every friday evening, the guests are treated with “pop-up” talks, great food, drinks and live music.

David Holmgren is invited to give a talk on permaculture, gardening and Monet on Aug 9. Have a date with Monet and David. The whole night’s program starts at 5.30pm.
