Footpath gardening—what we’ve learnt
Footpath gardening changes thoroughfares—urban spaces along which people hurry—into places where they linger. Since the first footpath approved gardens appeared in Chippendale several years ago to the development of local government policy around the practice, we have learned much about their design… and that has turned out to be more complicated than is commonly imagined. That’s what we will explore in this session.
We’ll look at design parameters and see images of existing footpath gardens in Sydney and learn how people went about creating them.
