Urban Material Foraging Manifesto

In parallel with building a treehouse in Eindhoven, we started collecting and repurposing material from our local urban environment. This "foraging" practice resulted in a collaborative guide and manifesto for urban foraging.

The Urban Materal Foraging (UMF) Manifesto is an open-source, minimal, low-ink guide to collecct ways to source material (repurposed, upcycled, second-hand, etc.) in the local environment.
