Following the AGM there will be short presentations from two students who are doing PhD research relevant to our area. They are:
Ross Wissing, who is investigating the role of the home garden in sustainably meeting human and ecological needs in urban Geelong. Ross also works in open space planning at the Surf Coast Shire with a focus on land management, policy and master plan development, and Aboriginal cultural heritage.
Krista Bonfantine, a watershed ecologist, who has spent much of her life in the Rocky Mountains of New Mexico and Colorado but has also worked along both coasts of the United States. She will share a brief description of her research project, which is focused on the Painkalac Creek, and summarise some of her preliminary results. She will also be looking for feedback to help set direction for the future of the project.
Attendees are invited to join the committee for refreshments following the presentations.
