21st Century Garden Ethics
Why gardening with native plants is an ethical and even moral imperative in a world of climate change and extinction. This talk explores ecology, science, psychology, and philosophy as we ponder how to embrace gardens as places to create social / cultural change.
Designing for Winter Wildlife and Beauty
The gardening season doesn't end in October. Not for us, not for wildlife, not even for the plants. In fact, the garden is just beginning to show its deeper side. Look at native plants that add pizzazz in fall, from herbaceous perennials with fantastic autumn color and ornamental seed heads, to structural perennials, shrubs, and grasses that look outstanding into spring. Fall and winter gardens are the best!
