To kick off September, we head to the Big Apple, where at the end of the month, the Garden Conservancy is holding its inaugural Garden Futures Summit on September 29th and 30th.

In preparation, we thought we’d dedicate two episodes to checking in on some garden lives in the city.

This week we’re in conversation with photographer, artist, author, and gardener Ngoc Minh Ngo, sharing more about her newest work, “New York Green,” profiling in word and uplifting photography more than 40 exceptional parks and gardens of the five boroughs that comprise New York City.

“From tiny corner lots to acres of old-growth forests, New York is filled with a wealth of beautiful green spaces–if you know where to look,” and Ngoc Minh Ngo’s book shows us just where to look.

Ngoc was a previous guest on Cultivating Place in 2018, and I am so pleased to welcome her back. Listen in!
