TBG Lecture: Living in the Wild: My House

April 28, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join noted landscape designer Larry Weaner to learn how to experience wild nature even in the smallest backyard garden. Experiencing wild nature needn’t be limited to the remotest regions of the world. It can happen in even the smallest backyard garden. Learn how noted landscape designer Larry Weaner interacts with and responds to ecological processes to create an ever-evolving wild yet still ornamental garden in his small property outside Philadelphia. Learn 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, discover how loosening the reins can bring a newfound mystery and discovery to even the smallest garden.

Public $15, Free for member and volunteers
