This New England Wildflower Society lecture takes its inspiration from the Slow Food movement, Slow Landscaping seeks to counteract fast or instant landscaping, by showing the way to more fulfilling, equitable, and sustainable landscape practices. This approach to landscaping human settlements mimics the relationships found in natural ecologies. It seeks to preserve native plants, associated ecosystems and wildlife within an ecoregion. It also supports the use of local materials, reducing waste and carbon outputs and education about plants and their importance in the larger environment. Join two veteran garden designers to explore this novel concept and then walk the Garden to see how these practices can play out on the landscape.
