    Event description

    Native Fire-Wise Landscaping

    Are you keen to learn about our local native plant species and how they may be able to reduce risk of bushfire at your place whilst enhancing biodiversity?

    Join us for a presentation by Angela and Paul Cullen, aka the Two BUSHIES who will discuss local low-flammability native plants and how to incorporate them into a fire-wise garden design. Think landscaping elements such as rock mulch and sprinkler systems, and thoughtful plant selection, location and maintenance. PLUS a presentation from our local CFS Community Engagement Officer about what you can do now to make sure your home is bushfire ready for next summer.

    Following the presentations, there will be time for Q&A's.

    This workshop is great for homeowners, garden enthusiasts and anyone interested in learning about how our native plants can be used to reduce the impacts of potential bushfire. Whether you live in a rural or suburban area, the principles of fire-wise landscaping can help to reduce risk to your property when maintained appropriately. 

    It is important to understand that no plant is completely non-flammable. Species require maintenance (e.g. pruning) to ensure optimum condition. While a well planned garden is important, it is only one aspect of bushfire preparedness and should not be relied upon in isolation. 

    This event is part of the Fire Wise Education Project being facilitated by the Fleurieu Environment Centre. The project is supported by the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife and has received grant funding from the Australian Government through the Preparing Australian Communities local stream.
