7:30 PM



Event Page

The title for this talk was originally even longer, but a tad more accurate: Hardscape Plants: An exploration of local plants that are ideally suited for life on rooftops, walls, balconies, planters and patios. Jonas Spring runs Ecoman, a landscaping & gardening practice shaping residential spaces. Jonas uses ecological references in urban planting design. He sees the city is seen through the lens of nature, as a woodland understory. Buildings are cliffs, streets are canyons and roofs are islands. Jonas will discuss his ideas and show us how ecological references can help us pick the right plants for those tough urban spaces.
