Rick Darke And Living Landscapes

Our yards and community landscapes are all ecosystems. Rick Darke says they are opportunities to support biodiversity by building wilderness into the landscapes in which we live. 

Darke is a landscape ethicist, designer, author and photographer who is participating in a West Cook Wild Ones Chicago seminar called Putting Wilderness to Work in the Living Landscape. We talk with Rick to consider the components of “The Living Landscape”.
