What’s it all about?
There is indigenous plant life in the city, OMG! Come with us on a pleasant evening stroll and you too can meet them.
With fun activities based around plants and a touch of story-telling, you’ll experience the best way to learn about plants: get acquainted and interact with them. By so doing you’ll take some steps towards releasing your inner botanist.
What will we cover?
Walk, meet and talk with your locals – plants of course. That is, of course, a time-honoured way to get to know your (plant) community.
Stroll from plant to plant and be introduced with stories of their history and spot their different characteristics. Plus we’ll learn trivia about that plants, life cycle, bush food as well as their cultural use.
Who will be teaching?
Pascale connected to her Inner Botany in early childhood. She kept that connection alive ‘potting around with plants’ and growing a deep love of the Australian bush. She is an Indigenous Flora and Fauna Association (IFFA) member and taught plant skills to conservation students for over 10 years. She doesn’t know all of Melbourne’s plants (yet) but continues to enjoy the journey.
