indoor forest

Please join us for the launch of our Indoor Forest on Sunday November 27, 2016 at 2pm, at Northcity4: 61 Weston St, Brunswick.

In 2014 Northcity4’s Indoor Forest Project was chosen as a finalist in the Bank of Melbourne Local Project competition. Thanks to everyone who voted for us, we were successful in winning $10,000 to realise our dream to create an air-purifying, sustainable, permanent green installation at Northcity4. Our “forest on wheels” is a living work of art, based on NASA’s research on houseplants’ air-cleansing qualities and on air-quality analysis at NC4. It has been created from locally grown plants and locally built vessels of sustainable materials. All our research and project outcomes will become freely available for other makers as well as the wider community. Keep an eye on this page for updates.

This project could not have been completed without the initiative, leadership, drive and passion of Inari Kiuru.
