Greenbridge specialists are each paid for 20hours per year, to help a community project of their choice. This equates to over $13,000 in design services gifted back to the community each year. Does your group need help kickstarting a community project? Would you benefit from the input of an experienced designer who has worked on many community and regenerative projects? The project must increase community resilience and have an emphasis on regenerative practice. We have particular passion for edible landscapes, community facilitation, community gardens or child/school play areas that strengthen nature connection.
