Don Nardella decided in early 2003 to commission a report into the feasibility of a Botanic Garden in Melton. As a result research was undertaken by Victorian Parliamentary Intern, Ms Megan Barnett in the latter half of 2003.
A public forum was held adiscuss the findings of this report with the community and other interested parties. Following the success of the forum and the public interest it created, a number of people met on the 24th September 2003 and formed the FMBG.
