People Parking

Great post in Inhabitat. These are some really cool temporary parks in SanĀ Francisco. I am all for adding green to a street.

However the other element to think about is how did we find it acceptable to live without the green public space? How did cars get such primacy over people in the first place? Streets are city space and owned by all of us, Jan Gehl inĀ Cities for People shows a better way to use this space, and how is we design streetscapes for people not cars we get more lively and livable cities

Landcare Loving

Climate adaption is not a bad thing and its nothing new, simple things like joining you local Landcare group works to enhance your communities resilience to a changing world. This study shows people getting together to look after the environment in their local community feel are more connected to the land and each other.

Plant a tree, meet someone new, have some tea. Love it.
