Thank you so very much Festival of the Minds for inviting me to share a little more on reconnecting with Nature in my presentation today. You were one of the most lively and interesting bunch I've had the pleasure of talking with.
Resources I mentioned today:
'The Botany of Desire' Michael Pollan book and video (youtube available)
~ I don't agree with everything Mr Pollan believes but I do love his depth of historical research and sharing and aspects of his work.
any old field guide you can get your hands on (Old Botany Books!!)
I had: 'Wildflowers of New South Wales Vol 1' Florence Sullen with me today
and MODERN (great for the current defined Wildflowers & Plants)
'Cronin's Key guide to Australian Wildflowers' Leonard Cronin
'Cronin's Key guide to Australian Trees' Lenord Cronin
and mentioned in conversation but I would like to extend to all of you particularly in the Sydney region:
'D'harawal Climate & Natural Resources' France Bodkin
AGAIN, thank you so much I am so sorry I couldn't stay for the day today.
May Nature Always Bless you!
PS: Now go to your local council and find what NATIVE LOCAL PLANTS they can share with you!
