Come to this free Walk and Talk event
If you love seeing flora and fauna and are into saving our planet then this free Walk & Talk - Bioscaping 4 Biodiversity is an event that you would like!



It is part of the Giving Back to the Community program, Flora 4 Fauna - Australia is hosting a free Walk and Talk through the plant communities of one of Brisbane's premier Botanical Gardens.



This will happen on Sunday the 16th of June 2019, starting at 10.00 am and finishing at approximately 11:30 am. It will be held at Mt Coot-Tha Botanical Gardens, 152 Mt Coot-Tha Road, Brisbane.

The topic of discussion at this walk will be about how to effectively recreate a truly biodiverse native Australian garden. The aim of this is to help conserve our endangered native flora. It is also to help provide food, shelter and vital habitat for our struggling local fauna. This will also provide and secure a native food, tool and medicinal source for generations of humans as well!

This event is a very practical event and a good chance to see how the native plants showcased look, feel and grow for yourself in their respective biological communities.



During this walk and talk, you will be able to see:

Which native plants are recommended for a typical (Biodiverse) Brisbane garden;

A diverse lot of native grasses that can be used to attract and feed native fauna;

A selection of native Australian bushfoods, medicinal and utility plants that are endemic only to Queensland;

A range of native Australian host plants. These plants are ones that will attract, house and feed large populations of wildlife, including birds, butterflies and native bees;

A very wide range of native Australian flora that is found throughout South-East Queensland's ancient and highly biodiverse ecosystems.



PLEASE NOTE: that as there is a reasonable amount of walking, detailed discussions and a lot of time involved in this free walk and talk. It is not suitable for children under the age of 16 years old.

You are welcome to bring a packed lunch or picnic to have after the event. This will allow you to take in and make the most of the beautiful surrounds of the site.

Although this is a free event, there is a limit to the number of people that can be facilitated at this function. Could you, therefore, please confirm your attendance by sending an email to flora4faunaqld@gmail.com.

If you are interested in making a difference to your life, your community and the environment, do email for this free and highly informative event as this is a great place to start!
