Chris will explore how climate change impacts landscapes and gardens of many scales—from increased frequency and intensity of storms, to urban heat island effect, coastal inundation, drought, and biodiversity loss. How can inventive planting strategies embrace the change and dynamics suggested by complex adaptive systems ecology? And how can they recognize the full range of creatures—both human and non-human—that have inhabited and will continue to inhabit these landscapes?
