The Frugal Forest is a One Off Makery project, supported by Midwaste, the Australia Council for the Arts and Glasshouse Port Macquarie. Drawing in artists, musicians, scientists, community, business and industry, we aim to build an intricately detailed forest entirely from salvage. Why? Because nothing is wasted in the forest, and we could really learn from that. Check out our 5 minute doco, which will answer a lot of questions.
You can watch the project unfold or get involved: subscribe to the newsletter, donate your precious junk, come to a workshop, or contribute ideas. We’d like to hear from you.
