We had the privilege of giving a speech at Melbourne Sustainability Drinks this month. Thank you to the Sustainability Drinks Team and Shaper Group for giving us the opportunity to connect with everyone on Wednesday evening. Below is Emily, our director's speech about Urban Reforestation. Thank you to those who "co-designed" this speech with her!
On Thursday 27th of September Urban Reforestation ran a Convivial Dinner. It was a great evening with beautiful company and music. Thank you to Kinfolk for their great food and atmosphere.
Last week I wrote a piece about Creative Communities: 'A call to Action'. My point was Victorians can not just rely on the government to design our communities and places for us. It is evident individuals and communities need to play a much stronger and creative role in the process of designing and caring for place.
On Sunday 15th of July the Docklands Community Garden was opened in the middle of this new suburb. This is the product of hard work over three years of the Docklands Community, Cultivating Community, government, and a social enterprise I am involved with called Urban Reforestation.
Coltivando: Community Garden at Politecnico di Milano is a project Urban Reforestation has been collaborating with this year. Please have a read about the progress of this exciting garden.
