Over the past week Urban Reforestation's director Emily Ballantyne-Brodie attended the Victorian Super Trade Mission in China. This week our organisation, along with the Victorian Sustainable Urban Design Delegation (40 leading architecture, development and urban design companies from Victoria) has met people from all around China who are interested in designing liveable and sustainable cities.
The new Noble Park Community Garden is an initiative of Noble Park Community Centre and is strongly supported by local council and local businesses. Together with key stakeholders, Noble Park Community Centre and Urban Reforestation are seeking to define a vision for the site that will deliver an exemplar community garden for the benefit of local residents and the Noble Park Community Centre visitors. Key to the success of this project is the engagement of the local community in the design and delivery of the space, to build support and energy for the project and as a tool to assist in community building.
