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.
