With support from the Bjarne K Dahl Trust, The Red Room Company teamed up with Bundanon for a special New Shoots collaboration called the Eucalyptus Eco-Poetry Project (EEPP). The EEPP deepens emotional connections with the environment by supporting poets, students and local community to take a closer look at eucalypts through a poetic lens.


On 1 June 2016, students from Nowra High School bused thier way to Bundanon to work with poet in residence, Eileen Chong. During the EEPP workshop, students learnt more about the eucalypt communities unique to the area, collecting specimens and enriching creative and cultural connections with eucalypts thorugh a series of poetic activities.

Other poets involved with New Shoots include Lorna Munro, Eric Avery, and Mark Tredinnick.
