Stephanie Davison has worked in science education and outreach in schools and university, volunteers with the CoB Indigenous Plant Nursery, is an active member of the Wattle Flat Pootilla Landcare Group and a founding member of Gardens for Wildlife Ballarat. Her talk is based on the practical experience of growing and observing indigenous plants in gardens and natural landscapes in and around Ballarat.

Venue: FedTAFE Horticulture Campus, Corner Gillies and Gregory Streets, Wendouree.
Enter via the front door facing onto the Gillies Street carpark.
Free Parking: Off-street carpark on the corner Gillies and Gregory Streets. Carpark entry is via Gregory Street very close to the intersection. If the carpark is full, use on-street parking in Gregory Street and then walk to the main campus entry via the carpark facing Gillies Street.

Optional Nursery and Gardens Tour (max. 1.5 hours): If your time permits, join us after the talk for a visit to the neighbouring City of Ballarat Indigenous Plant Nursery. We will then carpool to view the indigenous garden bed at Ballarat Botanical Gardens and return to Gillies Street to continue our afternoon explorations with a guided walk through the mature indigenous plantings at North Gardens Wetland. Come along for any or all of the tour.

The presentation will also be streamed live to Facebook and posted for later viewing on the Smart Living Ballarat Facebook page. No need to register, everyone welcome.

Smart Living Ballarat is a free monthly workshop series looking at all different topics around sustainable living. It is made possible through a partnership between BREAZE and the City of Ballarat.

Join your host, Ellen Burns, on the 3rd Wednesday of every month!
