Help me out in the Dream to Reality environmental goal competition!


I've had my entry accepted in the Happyzine Dream to Reality environmental goal competition. The competition called for entrants to submit a proposal based on an environmental goal they'd like to achieve in their community this year. The winner will get mentoring, support and publicity to achieve their goal.

My proposal is establishing rooftop food gardens on apartment buildings in Auckland's CBD. I've lived in an inner-city apartment block, so I know how valuable green space would be to other apartment-dwellers. You can view a video where I explain my vision and read more about my proposal at this website. If you like my proposal, please vote for it at the bottom of the entry page, and tell anyone you know who might be interested about it. If you have any thoughts, ideas, suggestions or you're willing to get involved with bringing my vision to reality, please leave a comment below.

Thanks for your support!

Hey thanks Ricardo. We're planning some new projects at the moment and will be putting the word out for volunteers as plans progress - through the www.urbanpantry.co.nz website and through our email newsletter which you can sign up for on the website.

Just great.

Make a list of ways I (we) can help.

"Baby steps, if you have room to put only one tomato plant, put one tomato plant, the rest will come."

Those words from a Cuban guy who came to NZ in 2007 changed my life.

Thanks to everyone who supported me! You are all superheroes, because I won! Watch this space for updates on what we're doing to make it happen (and how you can become involved if you want to).

Hi Emily
That's a great dream project, and it's something that can be extended to every household with a roof (and the ones without roofs can do it differently).
Some nice pics there... very inspirational! Well done!
Cheers
