This audio conversation took place via Zoom in late October 2020. It was conducted by Tommy Rosenbluth, Program Manager of the Association's Climate & Sustainability Alliance, and features Kelly D. Norris, former Director of Horticulture and Education at the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden, and Emmanuel Didier, Founding Principal and Landscape Architect with Didier Design Studio. In this presentation, we discuss the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden's recent master plan revision project led by Didier Design Studio. Take a listen to learn more about creating a forward-looking model for botanical garden master plans and how to facilitate innovative design without sacrificing curatorial integrity or the richness of the horticultural experience.

Please note that this presentation contains audio only. We recommend the use of headphones for the best audio experience. Closed captioning and relevant timestamps are provided in the below video viewer. Full transcript coming soon. Enjoy!
