Add to Calendar   01/17/2020 07:00 PM 01/17/2020 09:00 PM America/New_York Lyceum Lecture Series: A New Garden Ethic

 

Gardens are meant to celebrate the beauty of wildness and translate our emotional connection to nature, but how can they do that if they are primarily created for us alone? Our actions matter in profound ways, and one way we can positively impact our environment is by how we garden. Landscape design emphasizing sustainable practices and native plants can be beautiful and functional for a wide array of species, but few understand why human and animal communities are so widely impacted by urban wildlife gardens.

 

Join Benjamin Vogt, renowned author and garden designer for his unique, inspired lecture. He'll addresses why our society’s increasing time spent indoors, and manicured monocultures in urban nature spaces are harming our physical and mental health. He examines how environmentalism is not political but rather social justice for species facing extinction, and how growing native plants in our gardens and landscapes we can create a compassionate activism that connects us more profoundly to nature and to one another.

 

What does a 21st century garden ethic look like?
