Bushfire Resilience Forum
Transition Gawler is proud to be hosting a Bushfire Resilience Strategy Forum at Hewett Community Centre, 24 Kingfisher Drive, Hewett (near Gawler) at 7pm on Friday 24 April 2015. If you are a property owner, this forum will provide you with some valuable support and ideas to help reduce the risk of bushfire damaging your property. Keynote speaker is David Holmgren, co-founder of permaculture and builder of several bushfire resilient properties. Also speaking are Helen Hennessy of the Country Fire Service, and Tony Fox from Natural Resources Management Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges. There will also be information stands and the opportunity to speak to people from BlazeAid, Sampson Flat Garden Revival and other relevant organisations. Entry is by gold coin donation (free if you have been affected by recent bushfires). There will also be tea and coffee and light refreshments for sale as a fundraiser to help cover costs of the event. David’s books will also be available for purchase on the evening. Please RSVP by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or at the Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/events/884648921558567/ so we have an idea of attendance numbers.
