Taking Care of Nature: Linking Backyards to Bush

A joint workshop with Gardens for Wildlife Victoria and the Victorian Environment Friends Network

Backyards to Bush

Hear fascinating stories of people caring for nature in diverse places, from schools to suburban gardens, creeks and nature reserves. How can this work transform a landscape? How do you start? Be inspired, learn what you can do, network and get involved!

Speakers include Peter Noble (Ballarat Environment Network – linking groups to transform landscapes), Irene Kelly and Kerry Davies (Knox Gardens for Wildlife – linking schools and gardens for wildlife), Anthony Bigelow (First Friends of Dandenong Creek – crowdfunding and revitalising a Friends group), Charlotte Fletcher (Cranbourne Gardens, helping bandicoots from reserves to suburbs), amongst others. There will also be interactive sessions and networking.
