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 31st May 2016, students from Shoalhaven University of the Third Age (U3A) bused thier way to Bundanon to learn more about south coast eucalypt communities and work with poet in residence, Eileen Chong. Through a series of poetic activities, students enriched their creative and cultural connections with eucalypts, each producing and publishing a eucalypt-inspired poem.  Read their poems here. 

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