Dates In The Desert

Please note: This event is now full. Please email [email protected] if you wish to be on the waiting list.

Known as the “Tree of Life”, date palms are central in creating viable, arid agriculture and communities in many parts of the world. Alice Springs also has a rich history in date harvesting, through the Afghans, Hermannsburg and local plantations.

Join Ben Wall, Churchill Fellow, at 12pm Friday 21st September at the Corkwood Room, Desert Knowledge Precinct as he takes you on a journey from Israel/Palestine to Morocco and back to Alice Springs to hear what he learnt from experienced farmers in these desert communities and how we can apply these learnings in Alice Springs.

A Moroccan lunch will be provided. Please RSVP at:

This event is sponsored by Inspiring Australia in conjunction with Regional Arts Australia and the Arid Lands Environment Centre.
