Rebar’s John Bela will be speaking at the upcoming Planting the City series at the Studio for Urban Projects on Thursday, October 22 @ 7pm.

This panel discussion moderated by New York Times writer Allison Arieff explores the strategies underlying sidewalk greening. From urban beautification, traffic calming, and rain water diversion to reclaiming roadway for pedestrian usage, these projects seek to enliven the public sphere. Participants include Jane Martin of Plant*SF, Gillian Gillett of Greening Guerrero, John Bela of Rebar, and Andres Power, the Project Manager of SF Pavement to Parks Program.
