Making Beauty Sustainable: The Charles F. Gillette Forum on Landscape Design

Returning in 2018

Join us for this forum, where we examine connections:  how, by reconnecting urban populations to the places in which they live, work and play, landscape design can revive communities. We look at how plants form connections in nature, and how those communities can be replicated in designed spaces to form engaging, durable, and beautiful landscapes.
