NOTE: This workshop has been postponed until May 14 due to COVID-19.
In this workshop you are invited to bring and reuse your plastic bottles as plant pots, transforming them with Indigigrow into a new home for a native plant. You will learn about planting, propagating and caring for native plants, and take home your very own to continue to nurture.
Indigigrow Planting Workshop is inspired by Lauren Berkowitz’s installation Plastic Topographies (2018-2022) in Virtue & Virtuosity, a series of hanging columns made from discarded and retrieved plastic packaging that contains native plants supplied by Indigigrow.
Indigigrow, a 100% Aboriginal-owned social enterprise that sustains people, land and culture through the propagation of native plants. Indigigrow seeks to deliver positive cultural and environmental projects by growing and reviving local endangered native plants and native edibles. They provide opportunities for the wider community to engage and learn, introducing people to the wide ranging benefits of native plants.
