Drawing from the ‘naturalistic planting’ movements of Europe and North America, this presentation will discuss similar approaches being developed and used in Australia; focused on using Australian plants. John and Claire will also describe some of the research behind the Woody Meadow Project and explore some opportunities and challenges that lie ahead for this style of urban planting in Australia.
