Welcome our keynote speaker, Jennifer Jewell. Jennifer is a renowned gardening advocate, educator and author of The Earth in Her Hands, Under Western Skies, and the podcast, A Cultivating Place. Learn more about Jennifer at cultivatingplace.com.
Jennifer will begin the evening exploring the philosophy of her Cultivating Place podcast emphasizing how gardens/gardeners are powerful agents and spaces for potentially positive change in our world. This philosophy helps to address challenges as wide-ranging as climate change, habitat loss, cultural polarization, and individual and communal health and well-being. She will share how this is exemplified by the important plant-based work being done by women around the world in her book The Earth in Her Hands, as well as by the innovative place-based gardens that celebrate western landscapes in her upcoming book, Under Western Skies.
Jennifer will spend the latter portion of the talk in conversation with Corey Barnes, Gamble’s new Garden Director. They will discuss the history and future goals of the garden inhabiting this leadership ideal. Jennifer will take questions at the end of the talk.
