High Performance Urban Ecosystems
Presented in partnership with the American Society of Landscape Architects-St. Louis Chapter, Missouri Botanical Garden, BiodiverseCity St. Louis, and the Academy of Science - St. Louis.
More than half of our planet’s 7 billion people now live in cities. As our urban areas expand, so does the need for high performance landscapes and regenerative design.
In this presentation we will discuss the interrelated nature between soils, plants, humans and ecosystem function. Site design and maintenance strategies that provide multiple ecosystem services and improve human health and well-being will be discussed, along with case studies illustrating project success and failures.
