A Pocket Forest!

Currently we are working on a rewilding project with a local family on Laura St Aspendale, to create a pocket forest. The pocket forest concept was developed by Akira Miyawaki, who has planted many pocket forests around the world often in cities, using indigenous species, very densely planted to create competition which encourages fast vigorous growth of the seedlings. The benefits include restoration of the habitat for wildlife, reinvigoration of the local species, and of course carbon extraction from our urban environment.
