At imby we’re helping people bring nature back in to their urban environment.
Our vision is a world where everyone can have a positive impact through their own and their community’s actions in whatever green space they have available to them, be it a garden, patio, balcony, or park - a world in which we see these spaces as connected parts of the community of plants, animals and people that make up our urban ecosystem.
