The Garden in the City

You may be thinking of putting your garden to bed, but Mary Soderstrom, author of Green City: People Nature and Urban Places, still has greenery on her mind. She is giving a presentation this Saturday, October 20, at the Greenscapes: Sense and Meaning conference, which is held at Brock University in St. Catherines, Ontario. Greenscapes is an academic and community event which will explore social, cultural, and historical aspects of gardens in human societies.

Mary’s presentation will be on "Green Cities and the Green Paradox." Her book Green City covers similar territory, taking readers on a tour of eleven cities around the world to see how people and nature have interacted over the course of history.
