Event description


Bushfire Protection for the Home and Garden

Join our June webinar with our guest presenter Dr Karen Brown- Senior Consultant at Bushfire Safety Consulting. In this presentation, we look at what the latest research tells us about how a bushfire is likely to impact our homes and gardens, and how we can more effectively reduce this risk while balancing them with other house and garden design objectives. Understanding risk can allow us to plan, prepare and maintain our homes and gardens to reduce the risk to life and our home from bushfire. Dr Brown will also discuss typical permaculture features which can increase or decrease bushfire risk to a building.

There will be time for Q and A.
