Anne was thrilled that her latest book Exceptional Australian Garden Makers was the overall winner of the 2014 Australian Community History Award and was also very pleased to see colleague and fellow Burnley Graduate Sandi Pullman Sandi accept the Historical Interpretation Award on behalf of the Friends of La Trobe’s Cottage, for their work in recreating Charles and Sophie La Trobe’s garden The Garden at La Trobe’s Cottage, Kings Domain. This category recognises unique formats of historical interpretation, including visitor experiences delivered by physical exhibitions, artistic interpretation, history walks or tours.
Each year the Royal Historical Society of Victoria (RHSV) and the Public Records Office of Victoria present the Victorian Community History Awards for historical research by local community groups. October 20 was a great day for horticulture, with two Burnley alumni Dr Anne Vale and Sandi Pullman receiving awards in separate categories.
Anne was awarded the Victorian Community History Award for the most outstanding community history project in any category, with her 2013 book Exceptional Australian Garden Makers.
the Awards were presided over by another Burnley identity RHSV President, and The University of Melbourne Associate Professor Don Garden
