New Urban Resource Hub launches

Wednesday, 10 August 2022

Did you know that Greener Spaces Better Places hosts an Urban Greeners’ Resource Hub, designed to support growers, urban planners, landscape architects, arborists and urban greening professionals to implement best practice to help green our cities?

Built in partnership with Living Melbourne, this resource is a useful reference tool for any professional working in the urban greening space.

The hub has undergone a major renovation and has re-launched this month following a period of close consultation with technical experts across research, industry and local government.

What’s in it for growers?

The best practice tools, guides, resources and case studies are designed to help urban greening professionals to protect and enhance Australia’s urban forests and green spaces across our towns and cities. By educating and inspiring this cohort, the team hopes to continue to raise demand for greenlife across the country.

But the resources are also useful for growers themselves, who are encouraged to review the resources and use them in their own sales, communications, marketing and content strategies.

The resources are an invaluable sales tool for growers, opening up new conversations with customers from local councils and urban planning spaces.

What can be found on the hub?

The hub includes dozens of individual resources in different formats, all of which have the common theme of supporting greenlife in our cities. It focuses on resources which:

  • Discuss the social, health and economic benefits of urban greening
  • Showcase strategies and best practice for design of urban greening
  • Utilise case studies
  • Include state or region-specific information
  • Include tools for implementation of urban greening

The Urban Greeners’ Hub is funded through the Hort Innovation Nursery Fund, using the Nursery marketing levy. Hort Innovation is the grower-owned, not-for-profit research and development corporation for Australian horticulture.
