Session 2: Planting for the Future: Horticultural Design Fostering Youth Engagement in the Luci and Ian Family Garden
The touch-friendly Luci and Ian Family Garden at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center (LBJWC) recently opened to stimulate interaction and exploration through diverse and sometimes quirky native flora. A leader in outstanding horticulture, the LBJWC is planting for the future– our children. We have designed innovative displays in plant-focused garden features to encourage physical activity, fantasy, and engagement. This requires a change in perspective from designing for just adults. Educators, interpreters, and garden designers will see how various types of plants achieve these goals and how they are used by children, guardians, and educators.
Presenters: A. DeLong-Amaya, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, Austin, Texas.
