Sitting beside my five-year-old grandson: The Optimism of Tim Entwisle
“What makes me optimistic? It’s a close call. Sitting beside my five-year-old grandson as he wakes in the morning light or planting a tree. Both are long-term investments in hope and optimism.”
That's what Tim Entwisle told me this morning.
Tim Entwisle is the Director and Chief Executive of the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria. I love spending time in these gardens and had the advantage over the last eight years that my children's schools were across the road from the gardens. I love the historic nature legacy of the gardens, and I love the modern meditation spaces.
Tim is also President of the International Association of Botanic Gardens and an Honorary Professor at The University of Melbourne.
