FIRST GROWING TOGETHER TOUR EVENT HELD IN ADELAIDE

4 June 2019

On the 30th of May, the 202020 Vision team held the first of five Growing Together national tour events in Adelaide, South Australia. The day was a resounding success with close to 100 people in attendance representing 11 local councils, five state government bodies, local property developers, community organisations and industry representatives.

Throughout the day we heard from speakers about local and interstate case studies of engaging community in urban greening projects, and watched robust debates between planning representatives, property development bodies and academics on the key challenges and barriers of engagement.

The highlight of the day was the workshop session after lunch, where attendees split into groups and presented their case for / against a hypothetical development scenario to The Hon. Stephan Knoll MP, Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government and Minister for Planning. 

The day ended with a special briefing session for South Australian industry members with a recap of the day's activities by Carl Heyne from Heyne's Wholesale Nursery; and a wrap up of 202020 Vision and Plant Life Balance activities from Ben Peacock.

The team will be jumping straight into organising the remaining events over the upcoming month, so we encourage you to pencil in the below dates to your diary for the next Growing Together tour events and industry briefings in the other capital cities. Further details and official 'save the dates' will be coming soon. 

Melbourne: July 11
Perth: July 25
Sydney: August 8

Brisbane date to be confirmed.
