August City Forum: Growing and Green Spaces

6pm - 8pm

Farrell Centre

As part of its City Forum series, in August, the Farrell Centre explores green spaces within the city, questioning the role of nature in modern cities and they ways we can work to foster better relationship with our local environment — and what is needed to support this.

Speakers include Catherine Dee (Visiting Professor in Landscape Architecture at APL), whose research uses drawing and experimental design to think about urban trees, wilderness and gardens within cities; and Julliet Birch-Machin, from Scotswood Natural Community Garden, an organisation based in the West End of Newcastle which follows the permaculture principles of shared expertise and encourage partnership working.
