Seed banks: essential for preserving plant stock biodiversity
Sowing circle

Bellingen Seed Savers  is a modern sowing circle, trying to keep their varieties of seed alive. It  is a free and welcoming 'gardening club' interested in food security, heritage seeds and vegetable gardening where people can learn to grow their own food, exchange seeds, help each other and have a lot of fun doing it. The group covers a wide geographical area north of Bellingen from sub-tropical Coffs Harbour to the mountains of Dorrigo.  Fiona Morgan, representative of the Bellingen Seed Savers, explains how the group helps locals interested in edible gardening.
Preserving plant and seed stock biodiversity

The Heritage Fruits Society is a not-for-profit group based in Melbourne, Australia. Our aim is to conserve heritage fruit varieties (also known as 'heirloom fruits') on private and public land.

The Collectors’ Plant Fair was launched in 2005 and has grown to be the largest rare plant fair in Australia. In their 13th year the Fair attracted 88 specialist plant growers and garden related stallholders over one weekend in autumn, within the historic grounds of the Hawkesbury Race Club. This is an exciting and informative event for plant lovers, seeing long lost plants, meeting and connecting with growers.
