Biofilta Co-Director Brendan Condon joined sustainability expert Dominique Hes to present to an online forum in Sydney on the opportunities and benefits of urban greening and urban farming in our cities. A big thanks to Owners Corporation Network (OCN) , City of Sydney and Willow Alliento for organising the forum.
With most of us spending more time at home, finding ways to support our wellbeing is essential. We looked at how plants can make our homes and ourselves healthier – including ways indoor plants can be beneficial and how you can grow fresh produce and herbs on a windowsill, wall, balcony, patio or in common garden areas.
OCN was delighted to have two leading experts in the benefits of urban greening presenting to give you insights into how plants improve air quality, reduce stress levels, support our immune system and help us flourish. They will also share some tips for creating an urban oasis at your place. This event is brought to you with support from the City of Sydney.
