The Eye of the Beholder: Is It Messy, or an Acquired Taste? | Edwina Von Gal

June 15, 2023

07:30 PM - 08:30 PM

IN PERSON at Emanuel Synagogue at 160 Mohegan Drive, West Hartford, CT ~ ONLINE via Zoom

The rewards of gardening with nature, not against it, are a fabulous mix of process and perception. Landscape designer Edwina Von Gal discusses why we need to change the way we garden and how to make it happen. Our obsession with tidy, “clean” landscapes is proving to be harmful to the things and the ones we love. How can we step away from the need for ‘neat’ and let nature play a role in how we perceive, design, and maintain our human-dominated landscapes? Edwina will also discuss the new Earth Equity movement, which seeks ethical, social and environmental equity for human and non-human lives, and the systems that support them, and Perfect Earth Project’s initiative Two Thirds for the Birds, a call to action to landscape and environmental professionals to make all their projects habitat friendly.
