What is Climate Wise Planting?

Climate Wise Planting responds to climate change by getting appropriate plants in the ground. Plants capture carbon, provide shade and shelter for people and animals, and habitat for wildlife. It is fun, creates beauty, and is a way we can connect with the natural world and other people. Whether it is a single plant, a whole garden or neighbourhood - we all have the power to make a difference.

In this webinar, Edwina Robinson and Irene Kelly talk about the practice of creating gardens, the benefits of doing so, and share their stories of working with others to make a real impact.
