Designers & Creatives of the World Share your vision with us!

Urban Reforestation will be running a poster & storytelling competition throughout June - July.

The aim of the competition is for you to share your vision of Urban Reforestation with us. We will share the poster on our blog and social media and reference your work.

The aim is to continue an important conversation about Urban Reforestation and how it can change the face of our cities and the way we live in them.

It was quite phenomenal to see the transformation of the Herbert Street Street Curb on Sunday. A great group of people came together and made the block look really beautiful. Thank you to Reclaim the Curb and Libertas Food Gardens for supporting the project.

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.
