With changes in climate, can we re-assess what is possible in landscapes and gardens? What crops, what seasons, what methods and who is already demonstrating leadership in this area and how? What would a comfortable home able to withstand climatic fluctuations of 2040 have to have in place and how would you do it?
These are just some of the questions answered by forward thinking home and garden owners in a new video series, set to debut on Thursday 2nd December at 7pm in an online video and Q&A launch.
As part of the ‘Future Homes, Farms and Festivals’ project run by the Bass Coast Landcare Network, Landcare staff sought out progressive homeowners who had already implemented actions and features in their homes and gardens to help them withstand the fluctuations we will face with our changing climate. Working with Seagrass Films, we have developed a series of short videos that we can’t wait to share with you.
Hear from inspiring examples across Bass Coast on how they have adopted best practice approaches to increase their biodiversity, sustainability, comfort and liveability of their homes and gardens, how they did it, why, the benefits it has given them and how you can do it too.
Charles and Bev Watson in San Remo have cultivated a beautiful and functional garden using every bit of space, as have Paul and Fran Kirkpatrick of Cape Paterson who have an amazingly productive garden despite many environmental challenges. Each of these garden owners share the challenges they have faced in creating their spaces with many take-home tips that you can incorporate in your own gardens.
Brendan Condon of The Cape development in Cape Paterson shares with us the way they have been able to bring together clean energy and modern design to create comfortable and efficient homes with high star ratings and how the use of Biofilta cubes has turned their garden space into a productive easy to manage area. Ric and Mez Oldham of Archies Creek share their story in building their beautiful new home and the features that help it comfortably withstand many climatic conditions.
This online webinar will be held using Zoom and participants can ask questions through the chat function of the webinar to our garden and homeowners, which will be moderated by the Landcare hosts in between each video.
Bookings are now open at the Eventbrite link below and Zoom links will be sent out to registered participants in the days before the event. We hope you can join us!
The Future Farms, Homes and Festivals project is supported by the Victorian Government through the Supporting our Regions to Adapt program, with additional support from the Bass Coast Shire Council through the Climate Change action plan 2020-2030.
