Cultivating Connections: Future Landscape Architects Learning Series | Education in Nature
ILASLA is proud to announce a new partnership with our Service Committee and the Millennium Park Foundation to engage the landscape architecture, garden design, art, and allied communities to design, advocate, educate, install, and maintain four vignette gardens for Millennium Park and into the community. These gardens will showcase the intersection among urbanism, opportunities for community & neighborhood engagement, and artistic, risk-taking design among emerging and future professionals.
The first stage of the program is to foster community engagement. Cultivating Connections: Future Landscape Architects Learning Series | Education in Nature brings volunteers and community members together in mini immersive learning sessions for garden or site cleanups at designated locations. During each event, we will cover basic knowledge of invasive plants as well as other on-location plant species, including trees, shrubs, etc. In the future, the students involved will be eligible to submit their designs for the vignette gardens. This is an exciting opportunity to create mentor relationships rather than one-stop learning opportunities.
