Wild by Nature with Noel Kingsbury & Claire Takacs

Wednesday, June 8, 2022

3 p.m. EDT | Online

Planting design today is undergoing a revolution. With an increased focus on sustainability, private gardens and public spaces alike have embraced naturalistic planting, a movement that is rooted in environmental reality and prioritizes ethical concerns over geometric precision. Using breathtaking images from their new book, Wild: The Naturalistic Garden, renowned garden designer Noel Kingsbury and award-winning photographer Claire Takacs will explore a range of forward-thinking green spaces that are wild by nature, including iconic, high-profile public projects by Piet Oudolf and Bernard Trainor, privately owned gardens, and NYBG’s Native Plant Garden.

Purchase a copy of Wild: The Naturalistic Garden along with your ticket for 10% off the retail price + free shipping. If you would like to receive the book in time for the event on June 8, please purchase your ticket/book by Monday, May 23. All copies ordered after May 23 will arrive within two weeks following the event.

We offer Continuing Education credits (CEUS) for LA CES and APLD for successful completion of this course.
