Our latest 'Pop Up' forest in partnership with the Hawaiian Group at their Bassendean Shopping Centre got its official signage today - a beautiful recycled sign by local metal sculptor extraordinaire Martin Jaine. This builds on the initial installation undertaken with Sustainable Outdoors, which features 2 x 300kg recycled metal spheres, 100m of rusted recycled chain, 300kg of recycled construction and demolition waste from Red Sands, 5 x 100L trees from Ellenby Tree farm, 50 beautiful shrubs from Dawsons, 3 pallet sofas made by a 14 year old Flynn, 6 designer cushions# by local seamstress Kate Jones both from Hamilton Hill and 16 hanging baskets all made out of recycled materials by floral designer Yulia Bek. "The idea of these 'Pop Up' Forests is to show how, through the magical medium of trees and shrubs, we can transform hot and stark sites into funky, cool and green community spaces", explains Forever Project consulting architect Michael Gay. "The site has been designed as a passive meeting space but also it will host formal and official events like our Food Theatre, which will kick off its role in community education in early 2019. Watch this space as The Forever Project continues to work with progressive companies, local Govt and individuals to create more 'Pop Up' Forest makeovers.
