“Pam Warhurst: How we can eat our landscapes” I thought the key message in this talk was her recognition of the importance of buy-in from a dedicated group of participants. Organically formed organizations eventually need to find their foundation within the structure of the community and not a dependence on the original leadership. It looks like this is exactly what is happening here. I’m not sure how landscape architects could find a way of helping this, perhaps it will be simply finding a way to create an alliance. I hope she can see the beauty in the garden that isn’t edible as well. Click on this link to see what she has been able to do! http://www.ted.com/talks/pam_warhurst_how_we_can_eat_our_landscapes.html
I am moving away from my static Rigall/Design website and into a more active web presence with this new WordPress site. This will take much learning and changes in habits so please excuse the current roughness of the site. I am jumping in and learning while swimming in this new environment. As the conversation begins I look forward to meeting more people interested in gardens and garden history. We will see.
