Webinar Description:
Join Shawn Maestretti of Studio Petrichor for a journey into “how we” design for beauty, resiliency and honoring Earth’s living systems. What is a whole-systems garden? Great question… and happens to be one that continually unfolds, just as our gardens do. Beginning with redefining Form Follows Function, if and when we put living systems first, the functions of a living system become our north star as both professional designers and the home gardener. We will be looking at how we can honor the energy cycle, a much needed upgrade in mindset, and the Tenets practiced at Studio Petrichor, which guides our design process and beyond. This is a wonderful opportunity for landscape professionals, students, garden enthusiasts, and everyone to explore possibilities and walk away with simple, tangible tools to reimagine booth landscape and lifestyle.

Learning Objectives:
1. How we can honor the energy cycle at the start of the design process.
2. Tenets to practice and live by.
3. How we can redefine Form Follows Function.
