The Eucalyptus Eco-Poetry Project (EEPP) is a 'branch' of New Shoots created in collaboration with Bundanon and the Dahl Trust. The project invites poets and students to emotionally and creatively connect with eucalyptus through a poetic lens. By uncovering the hidden stories and secrets of the iconic green giants we often take for granted, the EEPP enriches understanding of eucalypts at Bundanon Trust and beyond.
Sydney based poet and former Australian Poetry Fellow Eileen Chong was in residence at Bundanon for the EEPP, working with Bundanon’s environment and education teams to deliver eucalypt-inspired poetry workshops to local schools and community groups.
