City of Ryde Sustainability Talks

This week Lizzy was invited to be one of the speakers for the City of Ryde Sustainability Talks. The theme was Biodiversity in Back gardens and Lizzy spoke about how we should be appreciating all of the hard work that insects and spiders do in our urban green spaces. It was a pleasure to present along side Peter Rutherford from Kimbriki Eco House and Garden and Dr Louise Metcalf from Australian Research Institute of Environment and Sustainability.
