This interactive session will explore a variety of urban revillaging processes and projects with national leader in the development of regenerative public places, Mark Lakeman.


From new public gathering places to urban homesteads, multi-generational farms, vertical co-housing, and huge climate resilience initiatives — we will explore how permaculture approaches are being applied at larger, more diverse and interesting scales.

You’ll get to preview some of the latest designs in regenerative public architecture and permaculture design. Let’s re-design our public spaces for more community!
