We drift under conifers, our feet
soft as nightjars on needles.

New Shoots sprouts at the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden with Mount Tomah's Garden of Earthly Delights celebrations. Continuing our partnership with the Royal Botanic Garden, award-winning poets Kate Fagan and Peter Minter were commissioned to create a series of poems inspired by the history of the Garden.

These poems were performed at the event on Sunday 12 November and will be 'planted' in the Garden (coming soon).
