"The age of green is upon us. We have reached a point in our human evolution where science, math, and creative genius have discovered a way to suspend a living forest in mid air. The answer to city pollution is now Stefano Boeri’s Bosco Verticale, the world’s first 27-story microclimate apartment towers currently under construction in Milan, Italy. Built to function as city air purifiers, these lush apartments will include over 900 trees, 5,000 bushes, and 11,000 plants throughout the tower balconies. Each perch of life will aid in reducing city noise, moderating atmospheric temperatures, absorbing CO2 emissions, and acting as an energy sustainer for seasonal weather shifts.
#Ottawa let’s have this for our city! This is truly what urbanforest is all about.

February has been an incredible, busy month! In the next week, we’ll be posting a few pieces following up from January’s feature post, as well as February’s feature post through Ef Magazine. Stay tuned, and thank you for tuning in.
Welcome to urbanforest’s blog!
Thimble Cakes is an organic cupcake bakery located at 369 Bank St. in Ottawa, Canada, and kindly hosted our first photoshoot. Present were local poet and radio host, Ali Alikhani, and Thimble Cakes owner, Wendy vanVelthoven as our models. Zena Saab from Beauty by Zena did a wonderful job on make-up for the models, and Malorie Bertrand, Editor-in-Chief for Ef Magazine, styled Ali and Wendy in sustainable fashion from Young Janes. Our house photographer, Gilbert Kimani, has another ongoing project called UGHtraction. The red velvet cupcake shown above, one of Thimble Cakes’ signature selections, was the main cupcake of choice in urbanforest’s first photoshoot. Super delicious!!
Thank you to everyone involved and stay tuned for ‘urbanforest @ Ef' ~ released on the last day of every month. The photo gallery will feature everyday people from the Ottawa community dressed in sustainable fashion living and doing business in a sustainable/local/organic way.
Looking forward to demonstrating to you sustainable lifestyle and business best practices in Ottawa!
