His lecture will explore how experiencing wild nature needn’t be limited to the remotest regions of the world.  It can occur in even the smallest backyard garden.  Using a case study of a small suburban property outside Philadelphia, learn how to interact with and respond to ecological processes to create an ever-evolving wild yet still ornamental garden.  Discover how this brains-over-brawn approach goes beyond simple editing of what occurs naturally and incorporates natural processes and plants’ reproductive abilities to achieve common aesthetic and functional goals.  And perhaps most importantly, understand how loosening the reins can bring a newfound mystery and discovery to even the smallest garden.

The event will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2017 at 1:00 p.m.
