Community Conversations – Morning Tea Number 1

Artwork provided by Brenna Quinlan

It’s almost time for our first Community Conversations activity – in fact, it’s happening this week at Greentime Nursery, St. Arnaud!

We have a few guest speakers for the morning, one of whom is the delightful Elle Fox from Seeding Victoria. Elle is going to chat with us about the importance of native seed collection to long term environmental health.

Elle Fox – One of our first guest speakers for the Community Conversations.

Elle has been working at Seeding Victoria while completing her PhD in Eucalyptus conservation management and genetics. Elle has her Bachelor  (Honours) in Applied Science: Environmental Management and worked as a Landcare Coordinator for seven years, which led into her starting her PhD. Elle looks forward to implementing native seed management strategies into the landscape, in different revegetation techniques and in the development of seed production areas. 

There is still time to register for this event (we need you to do this so that we can ensure that there is plenty of morning tea available!)
