Event description

Description

In Victoria we have extraordinary forests that are the source of our of fresh drinking water and we need to protect them. These unique forests are in crisis from ongoing logging by successive Victorian governments!

Come to hear beautiful music and gain insights about these rare and threatened ecosystems from highly regarded ecologists who have built up practical knowledge. What is the forest's role in bringing us our life sustaining water supply?

Around one hour away from Preston stand the magnificent mountain ash forests of the central highlands. These are the tallest flowering trees and most carbon dense forests in the world, and are home to our iconic wildlife.

Wonderful music from the Orbweavers. Drawing on love of history and science the Orbweavers have charmed audiences with evocative songs of creeks, quarries and industrial landmarks. Also Sanacori Italian ensemble - mesmerising southern Italian tarantella music to raise our senses and drive us to forest protection action!

The many cultures of Preston are united by a shared care and curiosity about nature and wanting to secure these unique forests for future generations to enjoy and be sustained by. Join us in the joy of coming together to share, learn and connect.

Light supper provided, with vegan and Gluten Free options. Drinks may be purchased at the venue.

Newlands Friends of the Forest and Transition Darebin are hosting this event as part of the Transitions in the Pub series.

We acknowledge the people of the Kulin Nations, on whose unceded land we will be gathering, and pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
