The Climate Factory is a landscape architecture firm that creates climate-cooling outdoor spaces.
In 2020, founder Edwina Robinson created the first climate-cooling micro-forest in Canberra.
At Downer 1800 native plants transformed a barren park into an urban oasis. The micro-forest concept has been adopted by residents of Watson, Holt and now Casey.
Our landscape plans include simple water harvesting, good soil preparation and using plant layers to copy natural ecosystems. We believe it’s important to use local native species PLUS plants from hotter, drier climates.
We offer workshops on how to build a community micro-forest and how to design an outdoor haven.
