Planting in a Post-Wild World

Designing Plant Communities for Resilient Landscapes

With Thomas Rainer and Claudia West We live in an increasingly globalized world where few wild places remain and nature has been relegated to isolated remnants of woodlands and wetlands. Now, more than ever, designers have the opportunity and responsibility to bring wildness and ecological value back into the landscape. This challenge requires a new form of planting design that works with natural principles and marries horticulture with ecology. Thomas and Claudia present a fresh approach to design, incorporating plant community-based strategies and the use of native plants to achieve the aesthetic and ecological goals of future landscapes. Copies of Planting in a Post-Wild World, co-authored by Thomas and Claudia, will be available for purchase and signing after the lecture.
