Natural Discourse: Culture & Cultivation

Natural Discourse’ is an ongoing series of symposia, publications, and site-specific art installations that explore the connections among the disciplines of art, architecture, gardens and science—and juxtapose the ideas of scholars, writers, and artists who are engaged in new and exciting explorations that inform the way we live on the planet today.

The first two symposia, held at the UC Botanical Garden, were among the very best days I’ve ever spent sitting and listening to others speak. This third symposium promises to be outstanding, with a group of speakers from around the country. The focus is less on gardens and more on art, with lots of inspiring ideas and images. I wouldn’t miss it for the world.
