Are you concerned about loss of greenspace to development, loss of wildlife habitat, and increasing urban heat from hard surfaces?

Our first project is Nature Strips which extends verge gardening from the realm of gardening enthusiasts and uses it to address pressing social and environmental problems.

We aim to make nature strips like this “the new normal”, cooling our cities and suburbs, creating walkable streets, building community.

Many councils have already got the policies in place to allow ratepayers and residents to convert their verges. A few councils are proactively encouraging residents to adopt verges and transform them to help cool our cities.

All that has to change is the way we think about it.

Individual verge gardens + funded verge gardens + sponsored verge gardens = maximum coverage in the shortest time

The Shady Lanes Project uses Internet communications technology (ICT) to create new ways of tackling urban development and social issues by linking many stakeholders into flexible, productive networks.
