As many of you will know, Vivid Sydney is fast approaching, running from May 22nd – June 8th. This year, Junglefy are lucky enough to be partnering up with Archikidz and Sydney Living Museums to take over the courtyard at Hyde Park Barracks and transform it into an exciting, sustainable PLAY[ground].
At Junglefy, we’re not afraid to get our hands dirty. We love plants and we want to see them growing everywhere in our cities. Over the June long weekend, we will be encouraging all of you to get your hands dirty at one of our Green Wall Workshops. With help from the fantastic Jock, you will get the opportunity to plant up a green wall and understand all the ins-and-outs of growing plants vertically. All of the modules planted during the workshops will then be donated to a public space within the City of Sydney that you have deemed as desperately needing some “junglefication”. Using a combination of social media and non-digital voting systems, participants have the chance to vote for 1 of 3 locations within the City of Sydney that they want to Junglefy! We want to see cities in parks, not parks in cities!
Here at Junglefy, we understand the importance of getting the little ones involved in “junglefying” our cities, as they are the future decision-makers and city-creators! Children learn about sustainability from a young age, at school, at pre-school, and in order for this to really make an impact, they need to see how they can apply what they learn in real life! For us, it is all about connecting children back to nature, and actually showing them the importance of sustainability and looking after the environment so that their children, and their children’s children can live a happy and healthy life.
If you want to be a part of making our cities better and healthier places to live, please come along and get involved! We would love to see you there. For family groups (2 adults and up to 2 children), cost per family is $100 general admission and $90 SLM members. Get in quick to reserve your place at this great event!
