Presenter: Larry Weaner


Throughout the world, people are re-evaluating how they interact with the landscape. From contemporary agricultural practice where monocultures dominate, to modern landscape design where static plant assemblages are managed to suppress successional change, it is clear that more nuanced approaches are needed. Fortunately, formulating these approaches does not require re-inventing the wheel. It does require, however, examining some of the highly sophisticated, ecological process-based practices that traditional cultures employed worldwide over millennia. While plant species and physical environments differ across these regions, many of the practices are surprisingly similar. In this presentation, Landscape Designer Larry Weaner will illustrate how traditional practices from around the world can be adapted to local conditions, and provide solutions for many of the horticultural, ecological, and even artistic challenges that contemporary landscape practitioners face.
