Going Upstream was a terrific project helping people make the link between their water usage and our precious water resources. It included  Journey Up the Gellibrand, produced by Bruce Campbell and featuring kayaker Christian Schultink. Pay a visit to our Fiona Golding-designed Garden shelter and you can see more including a fabulous sculpture by F Project’s Becky Nevin Berger. And click on the picture above for a shortish summary of the project.
