1.25 Hrs Virtual | Laura Kuhn

Every garden, no matter how small, is a human intervention in an ecological system. The more we understand that system, the more effectively we can balance ecological resilience with human functional needs and garden design principles. We will review case studies of landscape projects in suburban Boston and Cambridge, MA, alongside systems theory, to explore how to create beautiful, ecologically vibrant gardens on small-scale residential properties.
