This presentation covers a wide range of upcycling and urban farming success stories which might spur viewers into action. Creating an EcoBrick project or campaign can have a big impact within a community and on a particular environment. But there are many considerations that need to be made before jumping into the construction phase. In this presentation Ian speaks about the learnings he’s gathered over the last 7 years across a variety of different EcoBrick projects. From raised vegetable gardens and furniture pieces to a skateboard ramp and even a preschool campus.


Ian is an architect and a passionate edible garden designer. His biggest project to date is the Angama Mara edible food experiential garden in Kenya, an integral design feature of the prestigious Luxury Safari Lodge. Locally Ian designed the “Octopus Garden” at the Waterfront and a number of residential edible gardens. As the founder & vision manager of the Ecobrick Exchange, Ian is equally passionate about environmentally friendly construction methods. Ian thrives surrounded by nature, its magic and its creatures great and small.
