Professor James Hitchmough Lecture in Vancouver Feb 19th, 2015

Hapa is excited to sponsor a great evening of learning on Feb 19th, 2015, 7:30 to 9:30 at Vancouver Special located at 3612 Main Street.

“James Hitchmough’s research has explored how to design, construct and manage nature-like vegetation and, secondly, to identify what are the key elements that allow this vegetation to be seen as a positive by urban people. This research and that of other urban ecological researchers in the world is increasingly showing that the needs of people and the needs of the invertebrates and vertebrates that live in designed vegetation have much more in common than has traditionally been believed; win:win situations are really possible.

 James continues to road test his research through application to practice. In the UK he has recently implemented the first phase of a 15ha project with the Royal Horticultural Society known as the “Big Sky Meadows”, and is in the process of applying his ideas in many other countries.”

With all this technology, we still like pull out the colouring pens once in awhile and do things the traditional way.  Hand drawn illustration by Joseph Fry of the Orchard House for a very dear client of ours.
