Rebecca McMackin, Loeb Fellow, Harvard Graduate School of Design
The vast majority of plants rely on pollinators to reproduce, and the coevolution of these relationships gives us much of the beauty we appreciate today. Pollination dynamics are also fraught with trickery, bribery, thievery, and wild sexual acrobatics. Join Rebecca McMackin to learn the true desires of the organisms you cultivate.

Edwina von Gal discusses how we can change the perception of what a “good” garden is, where healthy habitat is not disparaged as untidy but appreciated for its richness, complexity, and life-giving magic.
