More about regenerating urban centers....

Dan M.
Forest Hills, NY
Post #: 384
I was glad to be able to listen to Andrew's talk about regenerating urban centers online.­

It's valuable for folks in the NYC permaculture community to consider specific ways to turn thought into action, and to work with people who are actually doing stuff. Otherwise it's just talk.

The topics mentioned in the promotional paragraph for the talk would be beneficial, but it didn't seem that they were covered in much length or detail in the talk itself. Perhaps I missed those parts. Since Andrew is very knowledgeable, it would be valuable for everyone if he would pull out some of the specific details, ways they could be applied to NYC, and share them as documents or discussion board posts that can be read by others. This would encourage more structured action by members of this meetup. What do you all think?

Regards, Dan


A Talk with Andrew Faust
Explore ways to bring clean air, water and soil back into city centers and urban landscapes. Create green pathways for pedestrians and cyclists. Start by removing pavement from streams and abandoned areas and reforesting them. Establish market areas with limited vehicle access. Build corridors that connect them to green belts outside the city. Shorten the distance of transmission of goods and services by increasing local production in the city and surrounding areas.
