A New Garden Ethic
This talk explores ecology, science, psychology, and philosophy as we ponder how to embrace gardens as places to create change benefiting all species. Through inspiring quotes, new research, and beautiful images of wildlife and sustainable landscapes, you’ll be taken on a soulful journey into gardening on a deeper level. In Vogt’s view, gardening with native plants is an ethical and even moral imperative in a time of changing climate and extinction.
