This week on Cultivating Place, we have the second of a two-part series celebrating the publication of Under Western Skies in conversation with landscape architect Christie Green, of Radicle landscape architecture based in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Radicle as in the first intrepid and primary growing root of a seedling and the idea of advocating for fundamental or revolutionary changes in current practices, conditions, or institutions.

Cultivating Place now has a donate button! We thank you so much for listening over the years and we hope you'll support Cultivating Place.

We can't thank you enough for making it possible for this young program to grow even more of these types of conversations. The show is available as a podcast on SoundCloud, iTunes, Google Podcast, and Stitcher.
