Celebrating Urban Reforestation

Last night’s celebration dinner by Urban Reforestation was a success by anyone’s standard - good food and good company.  The William Anglis team in charge of the event, Catchy Events, converted the shell of Urban Reforestation’s store to an artistic hall decorated with blossoms and candles. Guests included representatives from Vic Urban, the City of Melbourne, Landcare Australia, Melbourne City School, Parks Victoria, Docklands News, Docklands TV and the RMIT Centre for Design to name but a few, all brought together by the common interest of sustainability and Urban Reforestation’s efforts in the field.

The purpose of the dinner was both to celebrate and support the Docklands Community Garden as well as celebrating the ending of the project Target 3008 supported by the Victorian Governments Sustainability Fund.  In line with this theme, the photos by HIlary Bradford from the photography exhibition Life in the City, the Urban Reforestation Fortune Teller Game as well as the Target 3008 Storyboard (which, by the way, is still open for contribution).  While a presentation played in the background, following the history of Urban Reforestation, little was seen of it by the company, eagerly engaged in conversation. People left reluctantly from the evening, slowly trailing away – the sign of a good night.

Stay tuned for photos of the event by photographer Hilary Bradford. Thank you very much to the talented pianist Bryce Clark for playing on the evening. Once again he created a beautiful atmosphere with his self-composed music.

And if you’re interested in participating in Target 3008’s Storyboard, please contact Clare at clare@urbanreforestation.com. It is a great opportunity to share your story about sustainable living in the city on our website.
