Plant Walk and Talk
Time & Location
About the Event
FREE 10am-2pm Walking, talking, playing, listening and learning
Schuster Park is one of our city’s hidden gems. A former dairy farm, its pastures have been transformed by community care into a beautiful expansive green space nestled around a bend in Tallebudgera Creek. Filled with an array of native and introduced species in various stages of growth and development, the space is a subtle reminder of how identity can shift, adapt and blossom over time.
We’ll gather, mingle and go on a guided creekside walk, taking time to connect with the other organisms - human and non-human, animal, vegetable, mineral and algal, with whom we share time and space in the park. We’ll pay special attention to the unseen and overlooked, the unheard and under-heard inhabitants of the park as we learn about creek ecology, and develop our creek appreciation together.
After our creek walk, with members of the queer ecology group Seaweed Society, we’ll gather for a community picnic.
A special invitation is extended to those exploring, questioning and realising their gender and experiencing gender diversity and gender fluidity in our community. Please join us as we appreciate and centre the magnificent creek flowing through the park from an LGBTIQA+ perspective and share time, activities and time in nature together.
All are welcome at this all-inclusive, all-ages, queer-friendly, family-friendly, mixed abilities event. Schuster Park, Elanora (Access via Heather Street, Tallebudgera and pedestrian access via Nineteenth Avenue, Elanora)
