Metropolitan urban forestry (NY17005)
This 2018 investment fed into the nursery industry’s 202020 Vision initiative, which aims to increase urban green space by 20 per cent by the year 2020 and is supported through Hort Innovation Nursery Fund marketing activities.
The project was tasked with developing a deeper understanding of urban greening policies and progress at a metro/state level, including identifying any barriers to establishing green space. It also provided education and a touch point for organisations including councils, government departments and others seeking information on green space in the context of planning.
This included delivery of regular e-newsletter updates through the 202020 Vision network and updates via the 202020 Vision LinkedIn group.
This project was a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Nursery Fund
