Improvements At Honiara Botanical Garden
Quoting Solomon Times – 29 June 2020
“Significant improvements are under way at the Honiara Botanical Garden (HBG). The developments are being made under the Annual Work plan and Medium Term Corporate plan (2020-2022) of the Ministry of Forestry and Research and are also reflected in the commitments under a new HBG Management and Business Plan (2020-2030).
“The HBG Management and Business Plan is being finalised with technical and financial support from PEBACC and the SPREP Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change and Resilience (PacRES) project.
“The plan outlines proposed upgrade of infrastructure, rehabilitation and measures to protect the park from vandalism and encroachment. Over the years, the gardens, which were established in 1965, have suffered significant setbacks and lost their allure due to intrusion from illegal settlers and lack of resources to maintain the 19 hectares of green space.”
