All Day

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden


The 2014 Gillette Forum considers how the principles of ecological design create a network of sustainable, ecological, and regenerative landscapes.

Over an evening and a day, the three designers of the Native Plant Garden approach the modern expression of ecological landscape design through practice, theory, and science: Sheila Brady, principal, Oehme van Sweden & Associates, architect; Travis Beck*, author of Principles of Ecological Design, Director of Horticulture for Mt. Cuba Center; and Landscape and Gardens Project Manager at NYBG during the design and construction of the garden; and Thomas Rainer, who worked on the project while at Oehme, van Sweden, and author of the blog Grounded Design. Adrian Higgins, writer and editor for The Washington Post, frames the Friday discussions.
