Guest speaker: Peter Cundall, former host of ABC TV’s Gardening Australia
Peter Cundall, Australia’s favourite gardener, is coming to Sydney to carry on his fight to save the Upper Florentine Valley in Tasmania from logging by speaking at the ‘Florentine – Worth more Standing’ fundraising event on Saturday 29th May.
Though better known as the host of the ABC’s Gardening Australia, Peter has had a life long passion for the environment that is now being translated into direct action to protect old growth forest. He is currently on trial in Tasmania for his actions to protect the upper Florentine Valley, a beautiful area of old growth forest under threat of destruction from logging.
In addition to a wonderful talk about Peter’s experiences, the evening will feature gourmet finger food; silent and life auctions of items donated for the event and live music. Entry costs $60/$40 (concession).
This event is organised by Save the Styx and proudly supported by the Nature Conservation Council of NSW.
