Signal Reserve, Sydney
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH WOOLLAHRA COUNCIL & NATIONAL COUNCIL
OF JEWISH WOMEN, 30 APRIL 2022
Ecological restoration and bringing community together in the spirit of “Tikkun Olam” – the Hebrew phrase for repairing the world - was the driving force behind the National Council of Jewish Women Tiny Forest planting, Says Maxine Bachmayer, ‘We are committed to raise consciousness about our impact on this earth, and our obligation to preserve it in health for the generations to come’.
This project was the first of what will be many plantings at Signal Reserve. The group assisted the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, planting locally sourced indigenous trees, shrubs and grasses. In so doing the group were simultaneously contributing to an ongoing process of regeneration and initiating a genuine conversation to ensure that the interests of both people and ecosystems are deeply understood and appreciated. In this instance, the boundaries of community were expanded to include soils, waters, plants, animals and collectively the land.
