Harold W Caulfield "Gift of Appreciation"

Walter Hill Memorial Plaque 1971 

The Queensland Council of Garden Clubs has had a long association with the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mt Coot-tha. 

Curators of Brisbane Botanic Garden, Mt Coot-tha are shown below.  QCGC has made suggestions for improvement of the gardens. 

One of Caulfield’s responsibilities was for the BCC’s horticultural display at the Royal National Show, Brisbane (the ‘Ekka’), at which he was often on hand to offer information and encouragement to participants and the public. A fellow (1982) of the Royal Australian Institute of Parks and Recreation and a foundation member (1968) of its Queensland branch, he helped organise and run several State and national conferences and also presented a number of papers devoted to the management of botanic gardens. He was active in the Queensland Council of Garden Clubs (QCGC), which endowed a pergola at Mt Coot-tha in his honour (1983) and made him a life member (1987).

The QCGC published a selection of his talks, What Is a Garden? (1995), and a collection of his newspaper articles, Clippings & Leaves (1996).
