While this resource has been available for some time on the Victorian National Parks Association website here is an opportunity for early birds to come to the launch of the book and hear a discussion around the topic of native grasslands in the urban environment. The following text taken from event registration site……..
Retention of native grasslands in urban areas is a growing concern for urban development and design. There are a number of issues that can jeopardise their inclusion in a final development proposal or their survival if they are retained. ‘Start with the Grasslands’, written by landscape architect Adrian Marshall and published by the Victorian National Parks Association, provides advice for the design and management of native grasslands within an urban context and forms the basis of this breakfast discussion.
MC for the event is Elly Russell (landscape architect, Taylor Cullity Lethlean). Matt Ruchel, from the VNPA, will officially launch the book.
Here is the link for registration(which is essential) and payment for the breakfast event 7.30 am – 9 am on 23 July 2015 at City of Melbourne Bowls Club, Flagstaff Gardens.
