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.
On Thursday 27th of September Urban Reforestation ran a Convivial Dinner. It was a great evening with beautiful company and music. Thank you to Kinfolk for their great food and atmosphere.
On Sunday 30th of September at 10.30am the Noble Park Community Garden will be opened by Mayor, Councillor Youhorn Chea, from the Greater Dandenong Council. Urban Reforestation has really enjoyed working with this strong and passionate community. So much so, Emily our director has written a poem about the amazing people who have been involved in the garden and made things happen on the ground.
Urban Reforestation in collaboration with Sustainable Everyday Design Studio and Inclusive Design in Melbourne have been working on some visions for China's cities.
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.
