Cultivating Place: Prairie Up! With Plantsperson Benjamin Vogt
I know the adage goes that April showers bring May flowers, but based on images from across the Northern Hemisphere – from snowdrops in Vermont, Cherry Blossoms in DC, wildflowers in California, and daffodils peeking out in parts of Colorado between snow storms – April has plenty of her own bloom and the growing season is underway.
To inspire your planting and designs for the season ahead, this week we’re back in conversation with Benjamin Vogt of Monarch Gardens, a fierce advocate on behalf of our gardens being critically important links in our world’s broken and fragmented ecological chains.
You may remember my 2018 conversation with Benjamin about his first book – A New Garden Ethic: Cultivating Defiant Compassion for an Uncertain Future?
Well that ethical manifesto now has an instruction manual in Benjamin’s second book - Prairie Up: An Introduction to Natural Garden Design – it might be just the reference you need to get your growing season off to a great start. Join us this week for more with Benjamin Vogt!

We can't thank you enough for making it possible for this young program to grow even more of these types of conversations.
