Plant Life Balance, the project that aims to teach Aussies to harvest the big benefits even small touches of green can give, is hosting a night of chats and cocktails.
It’s an evening for plant lovers, by plant lovers, with a panel of local green-thumbed creatives.
Speakers include architect, author and co-founder of Collingwood plant store The Plant Society Jason Chongue; “Plant Mama”, an interior plant designer, stylist and photographer; Patient Wolf Gin co-founder and distiller David Irwin; and Nick Casey, a landscape gardener turned Howler Theatre’s curator. Each will share how cultivating leafy greens has helped their all-round creativity.
There'll be botanical cocktails and the city’s best ales to drink, as well as some plant-based eats to snack on.
Plant Life Balance is a collaboration between Horticulture Innovation Australia and scientists from RMIT and Melbourne University. Its research found just one plant can remove airborne toxins and improve air quality by 25 per cent, and creating a green “look” in your space can boost overall wellbeing, including mood, concentration and productivity, significantly.
From 6pm to 8.30pm.
