The Royal Botanic Gardens (RBG) in Melbourne, Australia provides teacher resource materials to supplement their education programs. Before additional materials are created, the current materials have to be evaluated. Surveys and interviews with teachers, interviews with RBG staff members, and research into the teacher resource materials at other organisations provided the information to formulate recommendations for RBG. Recommendations were provided to enhance the current teachers' resource materials, the programs they supplement, the materials' distribution, and offer ideas for new thematic materials.
