Garden Lecture: Expressing Culture Through Design & Stewardship of Edible & Native Landscapes
Time & Location
About The Event
Culture and landscapes have always been intertwined. Our food, customs, and lifestyles are impacted by, and reflected in, the stewardship of our landscapes within the broader context of the natural environments in which we live. In our modern world, people are looking for ways to reconnect to the land through growing food and having more environmentally beneficial landscapes.
In this workshop we will explore:
· Examples of different cultural relationships with landscapes at home and abroad, past and present.
· Strategies to holistically integrate our landscapes and lifestyles centered on culture, stewardship practices, and better site design.
· Sustainable garden and planting design strategies to better incorporate food production and the use of native plants in our gardens that meet aesthetic goals and support our desired lifestyles.
This workshop will include interactive discussion and some hands-on sketching.
