Webinar: The Challenges and Complexities of Ecological Gardens – A 5-year Journal of Discoveries
Take a five-year photographic journey through one of the largest ecological and bio-diverse built landscapes in Rhode Island: St. George’s School. Ms. Silvia will share the process, challenges, and discoveries she has made while managing concept, design, installation, plants, and daily maintenance of the landscape. Broader philosophical questions regarding the landscapes’ evolution will also be considered. Ms. Silvia’s passion for and dedication to this project will be obvious and honest, and her photographs will reflect her intimate daily involvement throughout the entire process of developing St. George’s landscape.
Lori Silvia has a BFA from Mass College of Art & Design and graduated from The Landscape Institute, Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University. A collaboration of art, landscape design, science, and intuition is part of her vision. She has been a landscape designer and gardener at St. George’s School since 2008, creating LEED-certified ecological designs for the newly-built Hill Library and Academic Center and renovating nearly every corner of the campus in some way. Ms. Silvia is dedicated to experiential learning and lectures to students and the greater community.
