Pirque Forest

From a parking lot to a lot of parks

This is an empty space in between an artisan village, a farmer´s market,  the town stadium, and the largest park in the area. It has become a spontaneous parking lot. We will build a SUGI Forest here, we will unite this fragmented place, provide shade and biodiversity to the hundreds of people that visit every week. It’s a strategic spot where citizens can witness how the trees are recovering ground, one forest at a time.

“We have turned a parking lot into an incredible Miyawaki forest before. Now I want to help my hometown turn dirt into soil. To show them the power that’s right underneath their feet.”
