Let’s Work Together, With Place

We are about supporting you in finding new ways of working with place. And in 2020, that’s just what the world needs.


We are a boutique consultancy offering tailored services to help local governments, non-government organisations and community groups make a difference – from local to global. Our broad range of skills is ideally suited to identifying and bringing forward out-of-the-box opportunities.


We specialise in placemaking, place-focused planning, coaching, facilitation and engagement. Going beyond a project mentality, we help you develop new ways of thinking and work towards lasting change. Our ways of working with place help you focus your efforts to make a difference.


Our way of working with place moves beyond silos. We focus on a deep respect for the Earth, on community connectedness, for the stories that make place meaningful. Working with place is about focusing our efforts in a way that makes them really matter. It is the big transformation our organisations and communities need. We work with generosity and a will to grow capacity, leaving a legacy beyond projects.


Sage Leaf Place is based in unceded Wurundjeri/Boon Wurrung/Wathaurong Country. We pay our respects to Country, to Elders past and present, and to the stewardship and connection to place of all First Nations peoples. As settlers, we aim to support the stewardship of place in a way that is deeply respectful and generative, wherever we work. We also proudly support the Uluru Statement.
