Green Tonic: Urban Gardening for Health & Wholeness Podcasts from Ladonna Redmond and Timothy Beatley

by Jonah Holland, PR & Marketing Coordinator Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

I’ve been swept up on the flurry of sending out emails, save the date cards and generally getting the word out about about our next symposium, Timeless Design in a Sustainable World: The Charles F. Gillette Forum. I almost forgot to post the rest of the podcasts from our last symposium — Green Tonic: Urban Gardening for Health & Wholeness. Please enjoy the following podcasts from Ladonna Redmond, as she shares her journey to bring her son and her community fresh, local food.  Also please enjoy these stories of Timothy Beatley, UVA Heinz Professor of Sustainable Communities, as he describes the amazing impact of Biophilic Urban Design. Bringing nature into people’s lives really does make a difference.
