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.
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.
Here are reports by Urban Reforestation regarding our project Target 3008 in the Docklands, Melbourne, supported by the Victorian Government’s Sustainability Fund and a large amount of in-kind support.
Dear All ,
This is a call out from Libertas Food Gardens, Melbourne Roof Top Honey and Reclaim the Curb: We think it is possible to create a nicer, healthier and an ecologically sound urban environment for us to live in and our children to grow up in. We are offering our services to anyone wanting to green up public land.
Urban Reforestation's Docklands Community Garden is a great place for people to literally get their hands dirty and become green thumbs in the convivial community garden. It is a beautiful oasis of nature to catch up with friends and share stories over a barbeque, picnic or drink.
