NOTHING LIKE A DAME’S GARDEN
AFTER a recent tour of the grounds of Cruden Farm, outside of Melbourne on the Mornington Peninsula, it’s clear every tree, flower and blade of grass was grown with love by the late matriarch of the Murdoch family, Dame Elisabeth. In this special one-hour documentary to mark the farm’s 90th anniversary, archival interviews with the great woman herself, along with son Rupert, daughters Janet and Anne, granddaughters Penny, Prue, Judy and Julie, tell the beautiful tale of the garden’s history and the special affection it is held in by the family, garden lovers and locals alike. Food star Maggie Beer (pictured) and landscape designer Paul Bangay lead the commemorations with a special menu sourced from produce grown on the lush property. A visual feast.
