Then and Now: Historic Landscape Practices as Innovative Contemporary Approaches
Pre-industrial landscape practitioners did not use heavy equipment, herbicides, or inorganic fertilizers, items that many now seek to avoid. They did, however, employ skills honed over millennia that displayed a sophisticated understanding of nature and its response to human activity. This presentation explores the surprisingly relevant practices of Native Americans, pre-industrial Europeans, and others to contemporary landscape approaches.
