Here are some free resources to inspire you to make a public micro-forest in your community.

How to make a public micro-forest or tiny forest – video

Our one hour workshop on how to make a neighbourhood micro-forest is now free. It’s based on our experience building four tiny forests in Australia with a fifth to be built in Queanbeyan, NSW in 2023.

We’ve developed a community building formula that is repeatable. Our Eight Step Method is based on our micro-forest creation experience and we save you time and avoid costly mistakes.

This method covers you from starting conversations in your community to building a climate-cooling micro-forest. Projects take around 12 to 18 months. This ensures everything is well planned and your community and authorities are on board.

You don’t need to be an expert to make a micro-forest, just passionate about making a difference in your community.

“Thanks Edwina. I really enjoyed the video. It was very inspiring. I’m hoping to get a micro-forest project going in my town, so I’ll be in touch with questions.”
