“Those who plant a tree plant hope”
– modified from Lucy Larcom
Come along and join us for a Community Conversation about all things plants!
We are bringing together a great line up of speakers, as well as providing some ‘hands on’ plant action.
David Taylor from the Australian National Botanical Gardens will be talking about threatened plant species in the region. He will also talk about work underway to help people identify, protect and consider ways to get involved in restoration that may include threatened & significant plant species.
Adam Shipp from Yurbay Consulting will share Aboriginal knowledge about plants, and how they can be used for medicine and food, as well as the ones we can grow at home and harvest for our own use.
Lucy Wenger and Ben Hanrahan from Greening Australia (and part of our Rivers of Carbon team) will be talking about how we can propagate plants and collect seed off the protected and restored vegetation on our properties.
Lori Gould and Siwan Lovett from the Rivers of Carbon team will be there to answer any questions you may have about opportunities to get involved in protecting and restoring riparian vegetation on your place.
Our venue is ‘Kentgrove’ in Goulburn which has a lovely garden to enjoy. This event is free and we will provide a light afternoon tea.
Registration is essential – please RSVP here.
