Join the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden for this forum examining connections: how, by reconnecting urban populations to the places in which they live, work and play, landscape design can revive communities. We look at how plants form connections in nature, and how those communities can be replicated in designed spaces to form engaging, durable, and beautiful landscapes.
