Annual Spring in the Bendigo Bush festival kicks off its 15th season on Aug 25. Over five weeks, the festival hosts workshops, walks, bike rides and events celebrating the region’s rich history and environment characterised by its ‘amazing’ box-ironbark forests.
As a part of a discussion of the state we are in,  David Holmgren will talk about the emergence of “novel ecosystems” in the bush, in our “novel times”, on the evening of September 10.

This evening follows on from events such as the Biophilia Blitz yesterday, Threatened Species and Environmental Change –our guided walk through the Whipstick with Terri Williams and Bendigo Tafe Conservation and Land Management students, our afternoon with landscape artist John Wolseley, and Sunday’s talk on the importance of observing and recording local species by Geoff Park .

All welcome, but registration essential.
More details about David’s talk is on our Events page.
The full program of “Spring in the Bendigo Bush” is found here. For further enquiry about this event, please contact [email protected]
