Greening Australia and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning have been working with a range of organisations to develop guidelines for community groups and agencies to build Climate Future Plots and improve the resilience of plants in your neighbourhood to climate change. Climate Future Plots are areas of revegetated and restored land that include plant genetics from different climates, making our natural environment more able to adapt to a changing climate. This means that, as the climate changes, these plant communities will be better equipped to change with it.
The workshops will provide you with knowledge of how to plan revegetation under a changing climate, including working out what your future climate will look like, and how to select the appropriate species and provenances to plant.
