“Elevating the Nature of Modern Landscapes”
a free lecture by Rick Darke

Rick Darke’s work is grounded in an observational ethic which blends art, ecology, and cultural geography in the design and stewardship of living landscapes. His projects include residential gardens, parks, post-industrial sites, transportation corridors, corporate and collegiate campuses, conservation developments, and botanical gardens. Rick’s Pennsylvania garden, created and cared for in collaboration with his wife Melinda Zoehrer, has served as a living laboratory for over a quarter century. His many books include The American Woodland Garden: Capturing the Spirit of the Deciduous Forest, The Living Landscape: Designing for Beauty and Biodiversity in the Home Garden co-authored with Doug Tallamy, and Gardens of the High Line: Elevating the Nature of Modern Landscapes co-authored with Piet Oudolf.
