IF TREES COULD TALK - A POEM FOR RAPPVILLE  

 

Join local bush poet Steve Cavenagh and artist Lyndall Phelps to create a poem that celebrates what trees mean to Rappville. Timber, and the benefits that flow from it, are central to Rappville’s prosperity, but the surrounding trees also have strong emotional connections for many. Jacaranda trees celebrate the early settlers to the area whilst Camphor Laurel and Illawarra Flame trees honor the young men of Rappville who died in WWI.

CONNECT. COLLECT. GROW  

Join us for a seed discovery workshop with Michelle Chapman, founder of Seed Tree Maps and co-author of Australian Rainforest Seeds: a guide to collecting, processing and propagation (CSIROPublishing, 2020).  Michelle will share some of the secrets of fruit and seed collection and propagation. After reconnecting with familiar plants and exploring new natives through a sensory and scientific journey, you will never look at trees in quite the same way again!

 

Michelle, alongside project artists Charlotte Haywood and Lyndall Phelps, will deliver a fun, hands on 2-hour workshop exploring how plant and tree species can be used to inspire new gardens, local ecologies, artworks, flavours, food, maps and community. Share plant stories and walk away with some free seeds to experiment with at home.  Using the maps and guide, Michelle makes the science of seed handling easy for everyone, because she hopes one day tree growing will be as popular and normalised as recycling or growing veggies. 

 

TIME:  10am - 12pm
