Resilient landscapes will be the topic of Allen Centennial Garden’s upcoming signature spring symposium, a series designed to explore cutting-edge, provocative ideas and emerging trends in horticulture and design. This year’s event, set for March 22-23, 2019, will feature resiliency in the landscape, focusing on robust and adaptable ideas and individuals that are navigating an uncertain frontier. It will explore a “new garden ethic” and share intuitive methods to manage landscapes with “know maintenance.” The discussion will cover two of the greatest contemporary public landscapes on earth: Millennium Park in Chicago, and the High Line in New York City. The event will feature a panel of local changemakers and trendsetters who are pioneering resilient landscapes in the Madison community. There will also be a special showing of the award-winning documentary movie “Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf.”
