Welcome to the ninth Turning a New Leaf sustainable landscaping conference. In a time that has felt anything but normal we dedicate the 2021 conference to "Planting a New Normal" , with the goal of highlighting collaborations that normalize sustainable practices and ensure diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.

We believe that landscape professionals have a unique opportunity to effect positive change in the Chesapeake Bay region- a task best achieved when we work together. Join us as we work together to create a healthier, and more equitable, watershed.

In this presentation, Darrel will talk about various people and places that have influenced him as a teacher and as a designer of ecology-based designs. The book, “American Plants for American Gardens” by Plant ecologist Edith Roberts and Landscape architect Elsa Rehmann was particularly influential. He will show landscapes he has designed at the University of Wisconsin Arboretum, Storm King Art Center in the Hudson River Valley, the New York Botanical Garden, and Brooklyn Botanic Garden as examples of landscapes influenced by naturally-evolving Plant communities.
