The Aquaponics Garden at the Basin View Masonic Village: promoting social cohesion in a sustainable way

Resource Description: 

This is an interactive poster about a transdisciplinary and sustainability project in which I am involved - the Aquaponics Garden at the Basin View Masonic Village. This project addresses a global 'wicked' problem, lack of social cohesion/disconnectedness, from a local perspective, in a sustainable way.

It won a High Commendation in the Salutogenic category from the International Academy for Health and Design. NB salutogenisis is focusing on keeping people healthy, rather than on the causes of ill health.

You can read more about the garden here.
