Associate Professor Maria Takolander – ‘New Shoots: A Garden of Poems’

Associate Professor Maria Takolander was recently commissioned to research and write a suite of poems in response to sites and plants at the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria by Red Room Poetry.
These poems will be ‘installed’ at the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria and published in Australian Poetry, and Dr Takolander will also be reading her poems as part of a Melbourne Writers’ Festival event at the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria on 3 September 2017: The ‘New Shoots: A Garden of Poems.’ 
Dr Takolander has been interviewed by The Planthunter and The Age about the New Shoots project, and has reflected on the project for Red Room Poetry.
