Downer Community Micro-forest
The Downer micro-forest is a community initiated and community funded pilot revegetation project that cools the local landscape, creates habitat and provides hope for the future.
Watson Community Micro-forest
The Climate Factory partnered with Watson residents Purdie Bowden, Liz Tavener and Joan Cornish to develop the Watson Micro-forest initiative. The group has raised almost $53,000 from 186 community and business supporters.
A community consultation session was held in March 2021 and a Draft Landscape Sketch Plan has been created to guide conversations with water harvesting, indigenous and play experts.
Sullivan’s Creek Micro-forest
We are working with the Molonglo Conservation Group to create a 1000 plant climate-ready micro-forest in Lyneham. We ran an on-line community consultation in May 2020.
Edible Micro-forest, Braddon
With support from the City Renewal Authority we created a display of climate-ready edible plants in wicking beds on Lonsdale St, Braddon. Native and exotic species provide food, shade and habitat and have been selected to thrive during hot, dry weather and cold winters.
Climate-ready Garden Design
We work with local governments and individuals to create garden designs and workshops that keep homes and gardens cool during heatwaves.
The Climate Factory periodically runs 1 hour online classes on ‘How to create a community micro-forest’.
