Whether you’re involved in planting 20 trees in a fragmented urban remnant or 2 million for a biodiversity offset, having access to a sufficient quantity of high-quality seed, from a broad range of species, is essential for restoring ecosystems that are healthy and resilient over the long-term. Given development pressures, climate change and declining space for connectivity across the Greater Sydney Basin and beyond, there is an increasing need for restorationists, plant producers and landscape architects to collaborate on ensuring natives of the correct provenance and genetics are conserved as well as planted within urban spaces. This event is being co-hosted by the ANPC and the Australian Association for Bush Regenerators (AABR) at the Teachers Federation Conference Centre, Reservoir Street, Sydney and is assisted by the NSW Government through its Environmental Trust.
