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.

Have you heard of the term YIMBY (Yes In My Back Yard)? It is a movement opposite to NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard). According to urban planners, NIMBY means people will not support a change in the urban landscape, as it will affect their private space.

Urban environment is tricky territory; it can be planned to the smallest detail but will constantly change organically at the hands of its inhabitants. Whether it's the slums of New Delhi or the skyline of Manhattan, it's all about people shaping their own environment.

Shepparton Food Hub, Goulburn Valley

Since February 2013, I have been developing a promising and exciting project "Shepparton Food Hub" in collaboration with the City of Greater Shepparton and Pollen Studio (landscape architecture firm).  The vision at Council is forward thinking and they are very keen to make some special projects around local food systems happen in their community.
