Wild by Design :: Strategies for Creating Life-Enhancing Landscapes
Margie Ruddick
ASLA, Landscape Architect

Thursday, October 20
7:00 - 8:30pm
Arnold Arboretim, Weld Hill Research Building
1300 Centre Street, Roslindale

Designer Margie Ruddick urges us to look beyond the rules often imposed by landscaping convention and sustainability checklists. Instead, she offers a set of principles that challenges the entrenched belief that natural processes cannot complement high-level landscape design.

Drawing on her projects—from New York City’s Queens Plaza, to a desertscape backyard in Baja, California, to the Living Water Park in Chengdu, China—she offers guidance on creating beautiful, healthy landscapes that successfully reconnect people with nature.
