The workshop will focus on plant succession in suitable gully refuge areas to make them moister over time and to begin a transition to a temperate rainforest environment. Develop your knowledge of temperate rainforest pioneer species and suitable fire-retardant tree species for planting in rainforest gully refuges - helping the environment recover and putting more moisture back into the environment around you. Learn seed saving and growing techniques. This workshop will help you make your nearest gully more fire-retardant by growing more rainforest.
A moderate level of fitness is required for this workshop as there is walking in the bush.
