What would it be like if we transformed the streets of Banyo with council-planted street trees supported by resident-planted native verge gardens, making them cooler, walkable, biodiverse habitat corridors connecting larger green spaces and other local destinations?
What would it look like? What would it feel and smell like? What would it change? Whose lives would it change?
- Brief updates on the project – what’s changed, what gardens have been planted.
- Discussion: What have verge gardens got to do with active transport (walking, cycling, public transport)
- Q&A, general discussion
Afternoon tea and coffee will be provided.
Limited numbers: Please RSVP here
