The Singapore Botanic Gardens – A Colonial Legacy

Behind the lush greenery of the Singapore Botanic Gardens, lies an even richer story of transformation and growth. This talk will focus on the history of this potential UNESCO World Heritage Site, reaching back to its humble beginnings as a colonial garden. It will also cover its heritage in the economy of South East Asia and its social history for Singapore.
