COMMUNITY FORUMS, WORKSHOPS & FIELD DAYS

We hold regular forums and  workshops on a variety of relevant topics. We also host occasional field days to advance the practical learnings of the local community.

SEED COLLECTING WORKSHOP
FEB 2024

An enriching and enjoyable workshop showing participants how to collect the seeds of native plants. We were again fortunate to be taught by Ruth Mollison, a pre-eminent expert on Tasmanian plants. We were hosted at a spectacular, revegetated property at Erriba, and were able to view a number of beautiful mature plants inc. Hakea, Callistemon, Acacia, and Athrotaxis (King Billy Pine). 

SHELTERBELTS and BLACKWOODS FIELD DAY JUL 2023

A special day. Participants were privileged to be hosted at two exceptional properties. First, a highly successful, certified organic farm at Barrington. We viewed a variety of shelter belts comprising native Tasmanian spp. and exotics. The owners - one of whom is a professional forester - shared their learnings. Second, a beautiful small-holding at Paradise. Here we were able to inspect blackwood plantations at different stages of growth and in varying locations across the property. Thank you to our generous hosts for sharing their expertise.
