Professor Mark Adams from Swinburne University of Technology will speak on his ground-breaking research about the ability of Acacias to increase their carbon capture efficiencies and contribute to rainfall, which has major implications for climate modelling.
There will also be some wattle seed inspired culinary delights and a free wattle for each participant!
